resolved Default Search Engine Stopped Working

3 posts in this topic

My default search engine is Google. Normally, I can type anything in the address bar, and it will search with Google. Been working perfectly for years.

In the past week or so, it stopped working. I didn't change a thing, maybe Google did.

Now, when I type text into the address bar, it comes up blank and pretty much frozen. 

Funny thing, normally, when I type random words into the address bar, it comes up with a long Google search string in the address bar and returns search results. Now it only shows "https.www.google.com" and a blank page. Did Google spoil the search string, or could this be a M5 bug?

My current search string for Google is: 

  • "http://www.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-2698861478625135:7463904445&ie=UTF-8&q=%us" (without the quotes)

Thanks as always!

That search string goes vertical, I guess I just found another bug!

Got it!

I had to make a desktop shortcut to reveal Google's new search string. It's shorter now.  (https://www.google.com/#newwindow=1&q=%us)

 

Funny how the old search string comes out vertically!
