When searching all files, arrow keys do not allow selection

Steps to reproduce

  1. Type ⌘⇧F to "search all files
  2. Press arrow-down key

Expected result

  • When I press arrow down key with the cursor in the search box, the first search result is selected
  • After an item has been selected, I can select the item below or above with the arrow down, arrow up keys.
  • Going all the way up will bring the focus back to the search box.
  • Continuing to type will bring the focus back into the search box also.

Actual result

Arrow down goes to the end of the search text, arrow up to the beginning.
