software-properties-gtk lacks search box

Bug Description

Expected behaviour:

Ctrl-f produces a search box able to search through ppas in the Other Software tab.

More than 20 "other ppas" and you looking for needles in a haystack. Compound this with the problem of not being properly alphabetised = headache
