Fix autocomplete suggestion list positioning #11803

Fixes misalignment of the URL Input autocomplete suggestions.

The autocomplete list renders in a popover, and positions itself relative to its parent. After some refactoring of the components used in the URL inputs (#10495), the list became misaligned due to a different parent being used.

This makes the suggestion list a child of the wrapping div around the input and adjusts the width of the suggestion list narrower to match the input.

How has this been tested?

Manually tested button block and paragraph inputs

@talldan thanks for working on this! I think there's another undesired effect from #10495: as the ellipsis button is now outside of the form element, pressing Escape doesn't close the link popover any longer. See the onKeyDown function is bound to the form (LinkEditor) element.

In previous versions, pressing Escape on the ellipsis button or its expanded setting panel, did close the link popover.
