Over a year ago I searched for "Swamp Cooler" in Instructables.  Ever since then, no matter what I search for, the search data is erased and "swamp cooler" is automatically entered.

And why woul that be a bug for Instructables?
What makes it to the servers for a search is what your browser sends out.
I highly doubt that noone else would have noticed such weird behaviour if Instructables would cause it.

I assume yo cleared your browser history, cache, autofill forms and performed a DNS flush to rule out browser related issues?

It would be an Instructable bug because it occurs nowhere else. Your assumptions are fairly correct. I do not use browser history. I have cleared cache numerous times. Autofill forms have not had "Swamp Cooler" put in for autofill. LastPass autofill does not appear unless a Login form appears or unless I instruct LastPass to fill in a form.
