The new find bar shifting down content

Mike,

Thanks for filing (and fixing) the bug and following up. I've been
traveling and haven't been able to track this thread as closely as
I've wanted.

I think that we should back it out on trunk as well, given the number
of outstanding issues and discussion of alternative implementation
approaches. Any objections?

I also think it's important that we find a moving-to-top solution that
is acceptable and that can land with Australis, for the reasons Brian
and others have stated, but it seems better to "reset" and do that in
a new bug.

We'll also need to do a bit of bug cleanup for all of the bugs filed
against the current trunk solution (open blockers of bug 869543 and
bug 893446, and probably others not linked to those bugs).

Gavin
