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?  

Info:
MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

OS X :: Can't Set Safari 4 Snow Leopard Google Search Box To Google

Oct 15, 2009

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

OS X :: Safari Google Search Bar - How To Change

May 22, 2009

I use Safari when I use mac (which is all the time now), I do use Firefox sometimes.

WHat I need to find out is there a way of setting up the search for UK searches.

For instance if I actually use google.co.uk you get the option of - pages from the UK.

But instead of going to to the google.co.uk page all the time is there a way in Safari so that the Google search engine will only show - pages from the UK

Software :: Safari Not Change Visited Links Colors On Google Search Pages

Jul 7, 2009

Something I've done in the past few days has caused Safari to not change color for visited links "only" on Google search pages, which is where it's most needed. This is still working fine on FireFox. I tried creating another user account and it works fine with that. Just not with my primary account. I've done all the typical things. repaired permissions, repaired disk, completely reset Safari to default and made sure all caches, etc. were cleaned out. Both manually and with Onyx, reset associated .plist files, history, cookies, private browsing. Returning to a Google search page still shows all visited links as blue, as if they'd never been visited.

Another clue is if I log out of my Google account (which I have to be logged into 24/7 for Gmail, Google bookmarks, iGoogle, etc., it starts working, then stops working as soon as I log into my Google account again. I posted this on Google Groups but got no response. This also works fine on my wife's Mac, so it's definitely a problem just in my user account. I know I could just add a new account and use that, but it would mean re-installing all 70 applications I have now installed as they're not setup for use except with my account. I'd like to avoid that and find the actual culprit. BTW, this worked fine for a long time. Just quit working about a week ago, but it wasn't in conjunction with any new hardware or software.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Finder Toolbar Search Not Working?

Apr 18, 2012

I have spotlight configured to not index the folder ~/Development, because it contains a lot of jars and I couldn't figure out how to turn off indexing of jars. 

1) I open finder to ~/Development/Foobar, which is a folder containing other folders containing files ending in ".png".

2) I go to the search field in the toolbar and type "png", switch the search mode to "File Name", but nothing is found. 

It looks like Finder's search function is completely broken if the folder being searched is not indexed by spotlight.  Finder should search without the indexes instead, or the search field should be disabled if it is broken. 

Is there an way to search a folder that is being excluded from spotlight indexing? How do I prevent spotlight from indexing the contents of jar files?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Disable Yellow Highlight During Search Process

Jun 21, 2012

This is not a question about the highlight color that you set in system preferences.When you search for text, the found text jumps out at you in blaring yellow, all too literally in your face. This was useful when they first introduced it in Safari-- but now it's all over the OS. In a text editor, where the search result might be a whole paragraph, it's agonizing. It's getting to where I have to look away from the screen when I hit Search, and wait a moment for the color to die down. Isn't there any way to disable it? It hurts my eyes.I found a thread from pretty exactly two years ago asking the same question:[url]

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Smart Folder Doesn't Remember Folders To Search

Mar 13, 2012

I've made a Smart Folder to have one place to look for any bills I've paid in the last 40 days, with the following parameters: 

- Search within a folder within my Home folder called "Accounts & Services"

- Name begins with "PD 2" (all my paid bills are labeled like "PD 2012-02-01 AT&T," for example)

- Last modified date is within last 40 days

The folder worked when I created it, and whenever I opened it for a day or so afterwards. 

But a month later when I open the Smart Folder, the latest bills aren't there. 

When I "Show Search Criteria," I see the "Search within" has been changed to a circular reference — it SEARCHES WITHIN THE SMART FOLDER ITSELF! 

The practical upshot of which is that it finds only the files that were found at the time the Smart Folder was created, and does not find anything newer because it's looking in the wrong place. 

I'm hoping someone has a remedy for this, but I don't have high hopes considering the "Mac Quick Tips" podcasts from 2009 in which Smart Folders are demonstrated show this problem in the demo without realizing it.

Macbook Pro 13, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

OS X :: Snow Leopard Login Wallpaper Stuck In Leopard's Aurora - CANT CHANGE

Dec 25, 2009

I don't know about you, but Snow Leopard's aurora is so much cooler. I used a program called "Desktop 2 Login" to change the default wallpaper for the login screen to a different wallpaper. Using this same program I changed it back to L's Aurora. (Still in 10.5). When I upgraded to snow leopard, the login wallpaper did not change. It is still stuck on L's aurora. I have used about every method besides Terminal, and it won't change.
