How to prevent search field from refreshing?

How do you prevent a searchfield from refreshing on a page after you've selected the search object (so clicked it to show the data) and pressed save to go back to the previous field where the search part is available.    Hoping this makes sense lol

Our solution to this is to create a search entity for every page/search and store a search object with all filters for every user. This way, every time the user returns to the page, their previous search is still there.
