video of the problem

When using more than 1 instance of Kickoff (for example with multiple monitors or 2 panels on 1 monitor), typing to search inputs the text in the most recent instance of kickoff that a search was done in, not the currently open instance.

1. Have 2 instances of Kickoff present on 1 desktop
2. Open the first instance and type something to search for.
3. Open the the second instance and type something to search for.
4. Re-open the first instance

The first instance works normally, but typing in the second instance, no text appears.
Re-opening the first instance, the text typed in the second instance appears in the search bar.
Manually clicking the search bar and typing works normally if all instances have been cleared.

Opening any instance of kickoff and typing results in a new search in that instance.
