The filters on the admin control panel don't seem to update when you delete the text in the filter using the web browsers built in "x" button inside the text box.

When looking at the phrases, if you type "create" it updates the list with all the phrases that match:

If you then delete the text "create" (by pressing the "x" inside the text box (a feature of <input type="search">):

It doesn't put all the phrases back (but it has cleared the text):

I think the X just deletes your text so you can type something new, and the Clear button is what you really want.

Well I think it'd be better if it was consistent with what happens when you delete the text manually and press the clear button

Isn't the x a feature of webkit ? I am pretty sure they can either keep the way it works not or get rid of it, I don't this they can do much else.

The x is part of whatever browser you're using (edit: although I think it's only WebKit that does it atm), the HTML5 JS "search" event should let you catch it
