why does my search bar disappear when I search jdowning72 2/6/11 3:07 PM
When I do a search, I get the results list but there is no search box any more. If I want to do another search I have to load google again or go back to the previous screen. This has only started happening recently, and it only happens in Chrome. If I use IE it is ok.

Hi jdowning72,

This is very strange, so thanks for posting. Are you, by any chance, using Google Instant? Any additional details you can give me would be greatly appreciated. :)

Thanks,
Kelly

I was using Google instant, although I didn't opt in, so to speak, Google instant was just there. I found that shortly after I posted the problem seemed to go away if I opened a new tab and used that. I normally have Chrome set up to open with two tabs, one for Gmail and one for Google. I would then do all searches from the Google tab and open results using control and click. This way I would always keep the same tab for running searches. If I opened a new tab, navigated to Google and searched the problem would not happen. I wonder if it is an old url that I saved a while ago in my settings for when Chrome opens, but I am at a different computer that does not have Chrome on it now. Will post again later.

I think I have fixed the problem by setting my initial pages to be something else (when Chrome opens), and then getting Google's home page up in a tab, and then re-setting my home pages to be as they are then, with the newly loaded Google tab. Then next time I open Chrome when I search I do not lose the search box.

I having the same problem.  When I do a search, I get the results list but there is no search box any more.  This just started happening.  Is there a quick fix to bring it back the way it was? 
Re: why does my search bar disappear when I search jdowning72 2/15/11 9:34 PM
Quick fix is close the tab and open a new one, then navigate to Google. If I do this it works at least for the rest of the browser session

Thank you jdowning72, I'll give that a try.

This problem is still happening. I can open a new tab, navigate to Google and it is ok, but if I use the tab set in my initial opening tabs to do a Google search, the search box disappears. I suggest someone from Google contact me at my gmail address: jdown...@gmail.com and I will provide screenshots and any other information you need to fix it.

I also get this error however opening a new tab does work, not quite sure what the relationship is with the error and the tabs though. I have taken a screenshot which I have posted at

In this I used instant after searching and visiting a page to search for hello (see the url query string). Notice that both the hello string and the original query string from the last search is in the url, which is why I think instant is getting confused

I'm having the same problem starting today.

God this is annoying. I search for something, see the search results, go to refine the search on the existing search results page and the freaking search bar is gone. Happens on and off.

I've just recently (past few days) starting getting the same problem on Chromium as well as Chrome.  It's rendering Google search almost useless.

I just started having this problem.  As soon as I enter the first letter into the google searh box, the google logo jumps to the top left of the screen and is much smaller, and the search box disappears, so I cant see what I am actually typing.  Once done typing, I get the results, but the logo is still top left of screen and I cant see the search box.

I have to open a new google page to see the search box, but the problem happens again.

This happens only when using Safari, not Google Chrome.   It's so annoying - how do I fix it??!!

I'm facing the same problem here!! How to fix it?
Re: why does my search bar disappear when I search TheManInside 8/13/12 11:43 AM
Same.  Images show it precisely.  Instant did not break until very recently (perhaps a week or so).  No problems with other browsers.

System information:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8
Chrome 10.0.648.127

This is an existing that's being discussed over here. Our team is already working to update it, and we'll be posting any news on that thread.

Thanks,
