Can someone tell me why I get this popoup everytime I submit a search via the built-in google search field in Safari?


And, more importantly, how I can I get rid of it?


This started happenning not long after the upgrade to Lion.






Safari 5.1, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Not sure, but try deleting the cache.db.


    Quit Safari. Open a Finder window select your Home folder in the Sidebar on the left. Then open the Library folder, then the Caches folder, then the com.apple.Safari folder. Move the cache.db file from the com.apple.Safari folder to the Trash. Relaunch Safari.

    My girlfriend's computer is having the same issue.  We tried those steps last night, to no avail.  She is generally a safe and savy internet user, and never downloads files.


    A temporary fix has been to use the Safari Block Pop-Ups option, but obviously the concern is that whatever is causing this is still running, even if we can't see it.


    Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.  When I get home this evening I will edit in full details of her system.

    I started getting this popup today too!  It doesn't come up when I switch to another search engine.  What is going on!?!?!

    I had the same thing.  I got it to go away by doing a Safari reset.
