Great site. When searching in FF 2.0 I'm finding the feedback of the entire screen going dark a bit distracting. Looks like you're using AJAX on the search so I would suggest maybe only displaying the screen feedback on the results pane and maybe making it not so dark.
Screen feedback when searching

thanks for the feedback. we have been planning to add a small loading image on top of the grayed out background. do you think this would help?
having the "Refine your search" pane unavailable during a search as well as the results pane seems somewhat important to me.

Yes, a "loading" pop-up on top of the screen-darkening is a Good Idea. I also found it a bit confusing, especially when I was on the porch with the laptop so the screen didn't seem all that bright to begin with. (The "loading" of course should NOT be darkened...)
