[bioontology-support] search URL not updated when entering new search term from results page

I just put a fix in place today which addresses this. The behavior now is that the URL gets updated when a new search is run. When you go back to the search page it will re-run the last search based on what information the URL has.

Sorry for the confusion!

However, if on this search results page I enter a *new* search term in the search field, click on a result from this second search to look at it, and then hit 'back' on the browser to return the results page for my second search term, instead the page displays the results of the first search I did. What's happening is that when a new search term is entered into the search field on the search results page, the URL above doesn't get updated, so hitting 'back' always goes back to the search results for the first search term that was entered in the 'Search all ontologies' search field.
