      Description

      Many people (myself included) used to fill the search box and then hit the add button thinking that would create a new organization because it was placed next to such search box. For that reason the button was made smart enough to pass what was written to the next page and pre-fill the org name.

      With the new design I think this feature is not necessary and should be removed for the following reasons:
      1) In the new design the add button is always visible and the JavaScript code that it's using is failing in some situations. I don't know the exact circumstances but some times it fires a js error and does not work. We could fix it but that would make the code even more complicated.
      2) It makes the JSP more complicated which is bad because we want people to be able to customize this toolbar
      3) This was a band-aid added because our previous design had usability problems and people used the search box to add new orgs. The new design fixes the root problem so the band-aid is not needed anymore
      4) The way it's implemented now forces using a POST for an operation that should be a GET (which is annoying when hitting reload while editing a user).
