Wireshark 2.2.0 Windows x64

Is there any way to disable the parsing that wireshark performs as you type the display filter? It crashes quite often. Also sometimes it hangs for unexpectedly long periods before any characters are displayed. I know that what I will eventually finish typing will be correct, and do not find the red/green flashing at all helpful.

I'm not aware of any way to disable it but crashes should definitely be reported to the Wireshark Bugzilla following the guidelines at the Reporting Bugs wiki page.
