Pressing the escape key always returns to the job overview page

      Description

      Pressing the escape key while browsing any build page returns to that job's top level page. This can be frustrating as navigating back to the page you were viewing on can be hard, especially if you don't know what build number it was.

      More unfortunately, this occurs if you are searching a page using the browser's builtin search and dismiss it with the escape key. 

      I would argue that escape should't do anything in general, but it definitely should't be doing anything when a search dialog is being dismissed.

          My usage scenario is also affected by this Esc button behavior:

          • Go to a pipeline test results (I just click a link in my email)
          • Open one of the steps
          • Open one of the test results – it opens a frame with a lot of logs
          • I scroll to the bottom of the log output and then I need to close this frame and check some other tests
          • Intuitively I press Esc expecting that my last action will revert:  the "log" frame will close. But instead I'm moved into project overview page which I never visited before.
