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?
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.
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]
When I am using Google image search in Safari, my MacBook freezes for about 20-30 seconds before it shows the results. It just shows me grey boxes in the beginning and loads for a long time. I had the same issue with my old MBPro, but also with my beand-new one.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
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?
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.
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?
Safari keeps quitting on me due to a plugin called ".foxeasyvideo.png". When I search for the plugin in finder, I get no results. I look in my main and user library under "internet plugins" and nothing is in there under that name. How do I find and delete this plugin? Safari is quitting almost every time I use it.

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!
