Query results download: Provide query results page with a hidden form for sending long query text

Description

The fix for is less than ideal when dealing with a results page coming directly from the query page POSTing a long query (>~ 1k characters). It requires working around by saving the long query on the server.

However, the query text is actually present in the cookies along with the other parameters needed to specify the query. These cookies could be copied into a hidden form at page load, then the Download link would perform its request as a form POST, getting around the URL character limit.
