Safari :: Unable To Use The Search Window On The Right To Get Results When Google Is Selected As The Search Engine?

Feb 23, 2012

I am unable to use the search window on the right to get results when Google is selected as the search engine.I type in a search term and I am directed to a blank google search page. I have to type in the search term again, then I see a list of "hits". But when

I click on one of these hits I am not directed to the URL displayed. I have quit out of Safari and relaunched. I have rebooted my Mac. Neither changes the problem... This is a Google problem: I have the same symptoms when I use Safari on Windows XP.  When I switch the search engine to Bing, the problems go away, for both platforms Has Google been hacked?  Is this a Google attack on Safari?  How can I enter GoGoDuck as a search engine choice?  

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Have just downloaded Safari to give it a try. One of the first things I tried was changing the default search engine to Yahoo UK (easy in Firefox). Bt it looks as if you can't add new search engines to the three provided.

Applications :: Using Safari And Search In Google

Jan 16, 2009

One of the things I like about using Firefox is the ability to select a word and search for it in Google. In Firefox this opens a new tab but with Safari it uses the current tab which messes with the flow of my work. Are their any tweaks to making Safari open a new tab when using the search in google feature or am I stuck with using Firefox until Apple addresses this?

Now when I press google search it downloads something vs going to google on the browser.

What am I doing wrong? I can't seem to find anything in safari to change that.

I noticed this after upgrading to SL and is safari 4.0.4

Applications :: Safari 5 - Extensions / Search Bar

Jun 15, 2010

Two simple questions:

1) Does anyone know when, in particular, the extensions gallery will go live? Later this summer is a bit vague. I'm waiting on a few crucial extensions (e.g., AdBlock, WOT, Xmarks).

2) Concerning the Search Bar (Bing, Google, Yahoo!), will I be able to add additional search fields via the extensions gallery (provided someone creates them, of course)?

I presently use firefox and found the 'MyCroft Project' to be absolutely invaluable. It allows me to search common websites without having to navigate to them directly (url). If I can get this added capability, I will switch over for good!

Applications :: Safari 5 / Won't Add More Websites To Top Right Search Bar

Jun 25, 2010

In Safari 5, there is a search bar at the top right that allows you to search Bing, Google, and Yahoo!

I would like to know if it's possible to add additional websites to that list. So, for instance, would it be possible to add Wikipedia to that drop-down list? If so, how? Will I be able to do this when the Extension Gallery goes live, sometime later this summer?

Essentially, I want Safari 5 to behave like Firefox/MyCroft and allow me to customize/manage the search list myself. I would never search Yahoo! or Bing, so I'd like to replace those with something a little more useful.

Applications :: Search History From Safari 4 Address Bar?

Jun 3, 2009

I've been searching for the missing link in Safari - the one thing that I need to stop using Firefox. I'd like to duplicate the functionality of the Awesome Bar in Firefox, which searches browsing history when a phrase is typed into the address bar. For example, if I want to listen to a youtube song, I could just type "Radiohead Paranoid Android" into the address bar, and assuming I had listened to it before, the link would pop up. Very handy. Unfortunately, in Safari, you have to type in "youtu..." and hope that you've listened to the song enough for it to appear in your few history links. Not very intuitive.

Are there any plugins to simulate this functionality? I tried Glims, and while it's completely awesome, it unfortunately doesn't help me here. I also tried the Quicksilver Safari Plugin, and while it technically does the job, it's just a tad clunky, and also has the annoying habit of opening a new browser window.

Safari :: The Search Bar Is Gone From It?

Mar 9, 2012

I only have the address bar now. When I open Safari it looks for a second as if everythings normal (search bar appears), and then it dissapears suddenly and only the Address field remains in it's place. (it takes up the whole screen now) I tried resetting safari, deleting extensions, repairing permissions and emptying the cache. Still can't see the search bar. Do I have to uninstall/reinstall Safari? The rest of the browsing experience is fine.
