At what moment does the text become selected? If you click somewhere else than the string search input, and the string search input becomes selected, this behaviour will be really strange, and most users will even think that it's a bug.
If you mean only when the string search is not shown anymore and you bring it back, it's a case that happens much less frequently. Also, when the string search isn't shown, you can input directly a new string search, and the string search panel will appear automatically with the new search, even if there was a search before.
Sorry, but for the moment I fail to see how your idea can be any good.
i cannot explain it better, but you can use it to see it what i mean.
I didn't use other explorers but firefox and very rarely internet explorer. My internet explorer don't have quick search menu installed, but firefox came preinstalled with google, amazon ... quick search bar, so i don't know if other quick search bars works same. I'm not familiar with the ESC key (even if i learning to use it with this apps) but i like this quick search behavior, which means, yes exactly what you already stated: after each search your string search input will became selected when you click somewhere else. This not means that will not filter as previously the results, but helps to quickly change the whole string search input.
