    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

    I then reenter the search term again, and this second time, it always works.

    What's up? I have tried clearing cookies and cache. Firefox does not display this behavior nor other Macs I have even under Safari.

    Many thanks.

    safari and google and google searches

    I am having the strangest problem with Safari and google. When I type in I get a blank screen. In the google search bar of the taskbar when I search it also is blank. Very puzzling. I looked online with no help. then I tried this. I did a search on firefox it worked fine. Then I copied the url and pasted it in the safari browser it worked but a little padlock showed up in the corner. When I clicked on the little icon it said
    class 3 public primary certificate authority
    pointing at google
    I also realize that the search said firefox not google.

    Also having a few issues with Safari. Actually disabled some extensions (AdBlock esp.) and everything works fine. Make sure you don't have troublesome extensions installed.
