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 :: Clear Safari Address Bar History?

Mar 9, 2007

This is probably very simple, but how can I remove the history that resides in Safari's address bar?

I guess I could "reset Safari", but then I'd lose all my cookies, and I don't want to do that.

I already emptied the cache, cleared history, restarted Safari, even turned on Private Browsing. The darn address bar history is still there.

I am new to my Mac and want to know who to clear the history in my "Today" folder in Finder. To be clear, I don't want to remove the Today folder but just clear the contents of the applications that I have opened.

On a side note, I would also like to know how to set up finder so that the "Today" folder won't show that I have opened anything (rather then having to go back and remove the history after the fact).

OS X :: Deleting Specific Search Items From Forms History

Dec 15, 2010

How do you delete specific search items in your (browser) form history? I don't mean a blanket "clear all", I just want to delete my typos. In Windows, you just need to scroll down to it and hit "delete". Doing that on Mac only erases a character from your search.

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.

OS X :: Want To Delete History?

Dec 26, 2009

I found this in archives, but it did not help. I want to delete history. I have FF set to delete history after zero days, and I can "clear private data", but when I start to type in the browser window history pages appear in a drop-down. I unchecked the FF box for storing things I typed in boxes. If I go to "tools" I get > Web search, Downloads, Add on's, error console, page info, clear private data.Preferences is under "firefox" tab.I say all that cause the forums all say look under "tools" for "clear History".It's not there. There is no specific "clear history".The "clear private data" is not clearing out everything, just the stuff in the history viewer, but that is not there anyway as it stores for zero days.
