I'm having a problem with Google on safari Version 5.1.5 when I open a new tab with Google as the home page I can type what I am looking for, hit enter or the search button on Google and it dose nothing. The only way I can search for something is either using the small search bar in the top right of safari, or type what I want in to Google then click on Google images then click back to the search then it will finally search for it. It has just become a bit annoying and only started doing it the other day. If anyone has any ideas I would be thankfull.

    Empty your Safari cache more often. Go to your Safari menu bar, click Safari > Empty Cache


    If that doesn't help, back to the menu bar, click Safari > Preferences > Privacy.


    Click:  Remove All Website Data


    Quit then relaunch Safari to test.


    If that didn't help either, open the Finder.


    From the Finder menu bar (top of your screen) click Go > Go to Folder


    Type this exactly as you see it here:   ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/Cache.db


    Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.


    Try Safari.
