Searchbar: Mitigations for searching through many students #2484
Who is this PR for?
What problem does this PR fix?
Autocomplete freezes for a bit with ~10k students.
What does this PR do?
Mitigates it by adding a min-length, delaying the responsiveness, and adding a CSS scroll overflow. The real problem is rendering so many items in the list, but jQuery UI hooks don't let us simply change that. #2194 is the better path beyond short-term mitigations.
Which features or pages does this PR touch?
Does this PR use tests to help verify we can deploy these changes quickly and confidently?
