IMac (Intel) :: Since Upgrade To Yosemite Cannot Use Google Search

Nov 30, 2014

I Installed Yosemite to my Imac last night, must say I don't like the interface half as much as the last one!  But that's not my main gripe.  I don't appear to be able to search on Google.  Is this deliberate, because of the rivalry between apple and Google? also since downloading ios 8 on to my Ipad2 it keeps freezing, and dropping out.  Not impressed with this at all.

OS X Yosemite :: Spotlight Fails To Search After Upgrade On IMac

Dec 4, 2014

After installing Yosemite on my iMac, Spotlight search results are minimal if at all (only contacts pop up)

I've adjusted Spotlight preferences by unchecking all search areas and rearranging the order of search preferences so documents, files and contacts are the only areas to search and still no luck.

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?

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 Yosemite :: Mail Search Doesn't Work On IMac Running 10.10.1

Dec 10, 2014

Search in Mail is not working for me on my brand new retina iMac running 10.10.1

If I type in something in the search field it returns no results but the same query in spotlight returns results (in my mail messages)

I have repaired disk in safe mode, repaired permissions, deleted envelope index files, reindexed hard disk, rebuilt mailboxes and spotlight indexes, to no avail.

( sudo mdutil -E /, cd ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData, rm Envelope Index*, ... )

What else can be done ? My other desktop mac is a 2009 Mac Pro upgraded to Yosemite and the search in Mail is working perfectly with the same iCloud accounts.

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 :: Google Search In A New Tab?

Sep 29, 2009

One of the reasons I like Firefox is I can highlight words, right click, and "Search Google" which *opens in a new tab*. Safari can right click to search Google, but it opens the new page within the same window. Is there any software to have the Google search open in a new tab? Maybe this should be a feature request.

Safari v4.0.3

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.

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

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

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?

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!

How can I change the google search to search 90% of the time I'm only interested in UK stuff. Other wise I end up doing the search then editing the .com to and sending again. Which seems very silly. Or loading up google UK in the first place.

Applications :: Can Google Search Inside IFrame?

Jul 15, 2010

I heard that Google can't/doesn't search anything inside of an iFrame (which iWeb utilizes). Is this true? I'm wondering because we've had a web presence for years now and we still don't seem to be coming up very high in searches, and our competitors do. I have submitted a sitemap to google (and other search engines) and tried to have relevant text and keywords on our homepage. Here is my website, created with iWeb. [URL]

OS X :: Google Search Enabled On Second Attempt In Safari

Aug 11, 2010

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.
