Bug Description

When typing the name of a file with the in window searcher thing (see attached screenshot, I have no idea what this is called) it no longer works properly.

Expected behaviour is that:

1) You open a new folder window
2) Start typing the name of a file or folder in that directory
3) You press enter to traverse your file system
4) repeat step 2

What I am getting is that after I begin typing the searcher tool disappears and stops functioning or it will work once then after I go into a new directory stops working then.

Not only this but the text seems to stay there when I use it after moving to a new directory so you might type something like "go" and enter to select the folder named 'good' and enter it, however when you attempt to type 'bad', you will end up with "gobad" in the searcher textbox because the window didn't wipe out the "go" text upon entering the next window.
