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?

May 19, 2010

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?

OS X Mavericks :: Bing As Default Search Engine In Safari Preferences?

Sep 10, 2014

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?

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 :: Using 10.6 And Safari Google Search Tab?

Aug 30, 2009

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.

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?

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.

Safari :: Keep Google Search In Toolbar?

Apr 23, 2012

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!
