IS there a terminal command to make sure that my default search engine is alwaysgoogle.com and not google.it or google.se or any place I am travelling to, since VERY OFTEN the results are MANY LESS than using the .com goggle site and I DO NOT want to be logged in google to save the settings, which are anyway erased by my security and privacy tool?
Info: MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), I erased OSX 10.7 'cause it slowed
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?
when i search something in the website bar (the bar of the website URL) why does it search on bing, i want to change the search engine to google but i don't know how. when i change the settings in preferences it only changes the websites for tabs and homepage. how do i change it from bing to google? i have a macbook pro, fully updated,. the problem is on safari.
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.
Sorry to be blunt i'm getting so frustrated trying to organise my bookmarks folders in Safari. The Folders keep snapping open and when i release click it drops the selected folder in the folder below and not in-between the two folders i want to order them in. I have turn off spring loaded folders. Also i can't seam to organise them alphabetically like you can with a right click option in windows.
Also how do i get the built in Google search to search [URL]
I would like to be able to set the default search engine for Safari as one of the better kid specific ones for one account on my imac.I don't think its an option in the preferences (perhaps it should be Apple?)
I was doing a search tonight and noticed that it bounced over to Google. I have Bing as my default search engine in my Safari preferences. As a test, I changed my default to Yahoo and the same thing happened. I closed out Safari and started it up again. When I entered some search criteria in the field, it showed the words "--Bing Search" just like before, but Google then took over. How can I fix this?
On my macbook pro which is using mountain lion, by safari search engine preferences is set to google, but when i enter a search term it defaults to bing. Only noticed this problem after downloading adobe flash player for what it's worth.
Regardless what your Internet search engine of choice is, Cuil (cool) is new and by former Google employees that I believe is worth a look. It�s pretty snappy and results are displayed a bit differently. Here�s the link: [URL]
I tried bing for a week, but it just doesn't give the same results as google. Is there any other search engines that come close to google? Also, how do you change the default search engine in safari? I've just noticed in windows safari that you can simply choose yahoo instead of google! Is it the same with OSX safari?
i'm already a safari user on my old PC and i used to have yahoo as my search engine (next to the address bar in the top) but right now i have google and am not that satisfy with google and i wanna change it into yahoo. so i pressed the magnifier to select yahoo (like i used to do on my PC safari to switch between google/yahoo) but i'm not finding yahoo. Anyway can anyone tell me how to switch between google and yahoo in my search engine?
Is there anyway to change the Safari search bar to use (URL) I know you can change between Google,Yahoo & Bing but I can't see a way to change it to search (URL) instead of (URL) when you are using it.
my mac has a virus or settings have been changed, but every time i click on either a link or open a new page i get extra pages open with random spam stuff and the mac keeper pages keeps opening. my settings for the default search engine keep changing too.
Previously the solution was to install Safari plugins Inquisitor or Glims but Apple have removed the interfaces from Safari 4 that these plugins used - and there is still no built in Safari Preference to set the locale of the Google search. Effectively this renders the Safari Google Search field pretty well useless - at least for UK users. If you're searching for UK-based businesses or individuals, for example, the thousands of USA results that come up first are just not relevant - (that's an example of British Understatement. by the way
