I like Lighthouse and use it constantly. However, since I'm a paying customer that gives me the right to complain stridently about things that annoy me. I'd like to request that you make the search box larger. Right now it holds about 28 characters before starting to scroll. I think it should be at least twice as big, if not larger.

You would be able to see your whole search string at once. That small change would make the search process much easier and less aggravating.

There is plenty of room in the UI to do this. You designed it with the search box on its own row, so it could really expand a lot. You got a whole column to work with.

Perhaps making the search box larger would compromise aesthetics slightly, but functionality is way more important. Yes, lots of people will do searches that won't take up the whole box, but I mean come on it's not going to hurt them to type in a bigger box.
