Answer

Event Bubbling is the main culprit there and you can stop that using event.stopPropagation(); for your expanded dropdown-menu and it closes itself when click on expanded dropdown.

$('.dropdown-menu').on('click', function(event) {
  event.stopPropagation();
});
body {
  padding-top: 50px;
}
.dropdown.dropdown-lg .dropdown-menu {
  margin-top: -1px;
  padding: 6px 20px;
}
.input-group-btn .btn-group {
  display: flex !important;
}
.btn-group .btn {
  border-radius: 0;
  margin-left: -1px;
}
.btn-group .btn:last-child {
  border-top-right-radius: 4px;
  border-bottom-right-radius: 4px;
}
.form-horizontal .btn[type="submit"] {
  border-top-left-radius: 4px;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 4px;
}
.form-horizontal .form-group {
  margin-left: 0;
  margin-right: 0;
}
.form-group .form-control:last-child {
  border-top-left-radius: 4px;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 4px;
}
@media screen and (min-width: 768px) {
  #adv-search {
    width: 500px;
    margin: 0 auto;
  }
  .dropdown.dropdown-lg {
    position: static !important;
  }
  .dropdown.dropdown-lg .dropdown-menu {
    min-width: 500px;
  }
}
