Bug Description

When in any "sub menu" (such as For Purchase or Provided by Ubuntu) and one searches for an item using the search bar in the upper right it completes correctly, however when you backspace the characters out to restart a search you are returned to the main menu vs being returned to the original list

Current behavior - backspace to empty the search area clears the search bar and returns to the main menu
Expected behavior - backspace to empty the search area clears the search bar and refreshes the list of the current sub menu items
