Get rid of "updating search results..." overlay! #3723
When "auto refresh" behavior is on, every time refresh happens, a blue box with a message "Updating search results..." pops up on every refresh.
Also it is sticky to the top of the viewport, so I can't scroll down to get it out of my view.
So when I set my autorefresh to 1 or 2 seconds, I effectively have a 1-second or 2-second interval BLINKING box on my screen. It's very distracting.
Provide an option to get rid of this box OR provide this feedback in a much less intrusive way.
It blinks and is very distracting (and eventually irritating because of the distraction). I can't just leave the autorefreshing screen up and keep it visible.
Can there please be an option to turn this off?
Or can you skip the popup for quick queries? For example, you can only pop up "updating search results.." if the query is taking more than 2 seconds to come back, but not bother if it's so quick that it comes back in less than 2 seconds.
