    Hey All,

    I Installed Safari 4.0.3 but for some reason the Google Suggestions drop down menu is no longer disabled and appears on top of Inquisitor. This is annoying because I prefer to use Google UK.

    Does anyone know how to disable Google suggestions in Safari 4.0.3 or as a work around make Safaris default search engine Google UK?

    Thanks

    I'm having the same problem. Been searching and can't find a solution, getting annoying!

    I finally found the answer thanks to another site - hit the 'esc' key to temporarily remove the Google suggestions window.

    Now I'm trying to confirm that my Inquisitor choice for using the google.ca site is actually still working.

    I'm sure the inquisitor folks will update to fix this soon.

    ah, glad I am not the only one. I have uninstalled inquisitor twice now thinking that would fix it...

    I am trying to switch to safari: its faster then firefox no doubt.

    However I am having trouble with some firefox features I am used to and cant emulate on safari. Well, multiple search engines was one of them, but thanks to inquisitor thats one less on my list.

    I hope the "hit-esc-key" issue be solved by inquisitor developers soon!

    I also would love that one could select a search engine and make it temporarily default, as one can do in firefox…

    Better just say your goodbyes to Safari + Inquisitor now, guys: Snow Leopard got rid of Input Managers. I'm not sure what I will do once SL arrives; switch to Firefox, I suppose. But I dislike it's unmaclike feel, and I love Safari's Coverflow history. Sigh. Come on Apple, give Safari proper plugin support!

    Edit: After reading a very informative thread over at Arstechnica, apparently plugins will continue to work IF you run Safari in 32-bit mode. That means no fancy 64-bit features like faster Javascript or crash protection, but I can live with that.

    So I jumped on installing Snow Leopard today, and I was crushed by the changes to Safari. (I guess I hadn't updated to 4.03 yet.) From reading this thread, I had Safari open in 32-bit mode. However, Inquisitor only "kinda" works. The google suggestions still come down and when I press the down arrows, it goes through the Inquisitor search results, but the google suggestions pull-down menu (default in Safari) covers them.

    I hope there's an update soon to fix this.

    On top of that, Adblock no longer works, even in 32-bit mode. This is a MUST-HAVE for me.

    Also, iStatMenus no longer works in Snow Leopard. This is killing me!

    I kicked Inquisitor to the curb long ago after finding out about Glims. Glims is so much better with way more options and customization. Glims also gets out updates much faster than Inquisitor so hopefully if it's not functional in SL it will be after a quick update.

    How to disable Google recommendations

    You can disable the Google recommendations, and restore the Inquisitor suggestions, by typing the following command in terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4IncludeGoogleSuggest -bool NO

    This was for the Safari 4 Public Beta. I don't think it works for the Final releases as the debug options were removed from the code.

    I apologize for bumping this thread, but has anyone found a solution for getting rid of recent searches? I'm switching from firefox, and I'm having some growing pains.

    The latest update fixed the problem. In snow leopard, glims works great--they even added 64-bit support in the latest release.
