Bug Description

When a filter is activated, and the filtering screen it self is hidden (by clicking on 'Filter results' again), it is not clear in any way that you are looking at a filtered resultset.

Use case: if a user cannot find something, the first step should to revoke filtering. But if he does not know/see that a filter is active, disabling filtering is not obvious.

Also, if the dash is closed and reopened again, the filter is still active (good), but it is not visible that the filter is active (not good).
