[New-bugs-announce] [issue35851] Make search result in online docs keep their position when search finishes

New submission from Roel Schroeven <roel at roelschroeven.net>:
Search in the online documentation shows results while the search continues in the background, which is very nice.
Only problem is: when the search finishes, a line with the text "Search finished, found x page(s) matching the search query." appears which pushes all the search results down a bit. When the result you were looking for was already displayed, you suddenly have to aim the mouse cursor at a new position, or it can happen that you accidentally open the wrong link because of the results not staying in their place.
Is it possible to allocate space for the "Search finished, ..." line from the beginning, so that search results stay in the same place the whole time?
