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.

    That didn't work. Maybe I'm not real clear on the issue. I don't know. Maybe this isn't really a Safari issue rather an ISP issue.

     

    I use to be able to just type in the address bar a couple of words and knowing that the info typed was not an actual URL Safari would pop something on the screen (I can't remember what now). Then, I would press enter again and it would give me results like I was using google or yahoo.

     

    Thanks for trying.
