How can I change the google search to search google.co.uk? 90% of the time I'm only interested in UK stuff. Other wise I end up doing the search then editing the .com to .co.uk and sending again. Which seems very silly. Or loading up google UK in the first place.
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?
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
After three easy erase, install, time machine backups everything is working great. I am amazing at how quick and easy it was to do this for my family's computers.
The only trouble I am having is getting google search results in Safari to open in another tab, instead of the same window, or a new window. Anyone else see this, or have a way to make this work? I like to click on a google link, and have it open in a new tab.
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?
Is anyone else experiencing this using Google search in Safari?
I'm unable to remove the results pane to the left - This started happening a few days ago.... Weird thing is, the pane doesn't show up in Firefox when searching via Google, and it doesn't show up when using Safari on my brothers iMac.
Suddenly the toolbar at the top that shows the website and a spot to search google is gone. The only way I can access it is to go to Edit>Find>Google Search. Once I've searched the toolbar disappears again and then there is no "back" button, so if I need to search again I have to go back to Edit>Find>Google Search. UGH!
Am I going crazy or did the google search field change? If say, I do a search in google, in the search result pages, the google search field looks like this: Notice the huge font in the search bar and the weird search button.
A few weeks ago I began to develop a problem when using Google search in Safari. It takes me there. However, when I enter my search term and submit, it just returns me to Google. I then reenter the search term again, and this second time, it always works. I have tried clearing cookies and cache. Firefox does not display this behavior nor other Macs I have even under Safari.
My address bar and google search box are missing. I X'ed out of safari, rebooted, ran my cursor over the top edge of the screen, clicked on everything on my toolbar, and searched everything. I can't type in a web address to go anywhere
I am trying to get the google searcher in safari (the one at the top of the window, not a toolbar or whatever) to search UK sites not US, just sommat thats been bugging me a bit recently, searching Amazon.com not .co.uk etc etc anybody got any hints on that? I read elsewhere on here that I can apparently do the above mod by installing SIMBL and getting that to work in inputmanagers etc. However I have an issue the .pkg file wont install.
Does anyone know if there's a plugin for Safari that does a "I'm feeling lucky" google search in the address bar? The same as how firefox does it. Also does anyone know a plugin the that puts a "Find on this page" search bar at the bottom of safari?

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]
This has been happening for awhile now. No doubt due to some upgrade. When I search for a string I'll get the list of google hits. And the search string will still be right in the window where I typed it. But sometimes after going to a link, I'll come back to this page and the page will be the same, but the search string is from a previous search. This is an inconvenience as I frequently go back to edit the search. I can't seem to reproduce it at the moment.
