Hi guys

On my mac pro 1,1 using Yosemite I have noticed that when I do a search using Safari the search bar leaves a drop down menu after clicking enter to proceed to the search even after I've pressed return. Only way to make it go away is if I click somewhere else in the now loaded safari webpage. This isn't something I've had to deal with in any of my other macs so I was hoping one of you would know what I should do to get rid of this annoying action.

I'm also having this problem but haven't yet figured out what's causing it.

I only have the 1Password and uBlock extensions installed. Do you have either of those?

Yes, have the block and tested it but removing it did nothing. Changing the search engine to yahoo did stop this behaviour. thanks Google for this annoyance!

Think I solved it. Removed "show favourites" in the smart search field and now even with google as the search engine the behaviour stopped.
