Map search is not useful

After using the new interface for a while here is my 2 cents:

1- When a map is shown, I'd rather when I click to get a full page (may want to get directions). Now it could zoom in with mouse in that small window and not let me go back!
2- The dark terminal theme, when I click anywhwere in the url edit box it blinks, which is disturbing because I may be double clicking a word to select it.
3- The fact that url edit box stays on top is IMO not a good decision, it is much easier to always have it

1- I agree, maybe having also a little link to the full Openstreetmap page would be useful to have more options.
2- I don't understand and can't reproduce the problem, here the blink is just an estethical thing.
3- You can edit the header behaviour in your settings.

Thanks for the answers, that is great to have that option in settings BTW.
In the dark terminal theme, everything is dark (kind of obvious :) so those blinks become much more accentuated. Lets say I search this then I want to select and copy `HttpResponse` by double clicking it inside the search url bar, the double click results in 2 blinks of the bounding box, the word `HttpResponse` is short, but the box is large and its blink becomes too obvious.
