After the update a feature that I liked has stopped working. I use to in the past prior to the Lion update just enter a couple words in the address bar and hit enter and Safari couldn't find or thought it was a bad URL I could hit enter again and it would do a search based on those words. This doesn't work now since the update. Any ideas how to make this work again?

    Quit Safari.


    Go to ~/Library/Safari.


    Move the History.plist file to the Trash.


    ~ (Tilde) represents your Home folder.


    For LIon:   To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library.


    Relaunch Safari after your move the .plist file to the Trash.
