Google images only shows one page of results kostello84 5/17/11 6:07 PM
I'm using Mac OSX 10.6.7 and any google image search I try yields only the first page of results.  I can scroll down through more pages, but they are just gray boxes.  Also, the scrolling is VERY slow and choppy - nearly frozen.  This happens in all browsers - firefox, safari, chrome.

I realize there are other threads about this, but none of the solutions (of the ones that had solutions) worked for me.  I have emptied the cache on all browsers, cleared all browsing data, uninstalled add-ons and extensions, and nothing has worked.  

This has gone on for many months.

I have another computer - Mac OSX 10.5 that works flawlessly with the image search.
Any suggestions?

Hi kostello84,

The same problem used to happen with my browser but after few seconds, the gray boxes will be replaced
with image results. It usually happens when the bandwidth is low. Switching to older version will help you
until the problem is fixed for you.


Regards,
Jasim

Bandwidth doesn't seem to be the problem - it doesn't matter how long I wait on the page, still only the first page loads - and my other computer works just fine on the same network.  

Any other suggestions?

Also, switching to the older version doesn't work either - not even the first page of images comes up when I do that - they're all broken images.

This has been broken for me for months. They're not going to fix it.

I was in the same position - problem for months, all browsers, Mac Os 10.6.7 (and also previously on 10.5), none of the solutions mentioned worked.

But there was one thing I hadn't tried...

Went into my Belkin router setup utility (by typing 192.168.2.1 into the internet browser), and turned the firewall off.  The problem went away.  Turned it on and it came back, so I am sure this is the cause.  I presume there is a way to tweak the settings so that you don't actually need to turn the firewall off, but that is beyond me unfortunately.

I hope this helps.

If you live in the u.a.e, go to proxy settings and enter the web proxy it is proxy1.emirates.net.ae port:8080 and your problem will go away.

I found that if I just signed into my google account (email) it worked, and images loaded like they used to. If I signed out, it went back to being the same with only one page of images loading. That cant be a coincidence, I think google made a little tweak and didn't tell anyone. Hope that helps if anyone finds this.

Scroll down past all the pages of gray boxes and you will find some options listed across the bottom.  Click on "switch to basic version" and your images will appear.  (You'll have to do this every time you go to Google images unless you find another clue that I haven't found yet!)

I have made changed my homepage to iGoogle and enabled the phishing filter at the bottom of my browser (IE7) and it corrected the problem.
I haven't tried the sign in option as was mentioned in another answer. It might work also.
To make iGoogle your homepage just write in the google searchbox "make iGoogle my homepage" and take your pick! Hope this works for you.

I have tried everything I can think of and no luck.
AND then I had a revelation.
SWITCH TO BING.
It worked. Full list of images.
Screw Google if they are going to treat us this way.

Tried a couple other things on both machines and one of them works.
  • Turning Safe Search on or off did not make any difference.
  • http:// vs. https:// did not make any difference.
  • Clicking the link at the bottom of the page to 'Switch to basic version' Allows you to view multiple pages
    • This is what everyone is familiar with and it works. The multitude of improvements to the Image Search this month are not improving the Google experience. Please provide a working solution or revert back to what used to work.

It's NOT your fault. Google has apparently changed image search results if not logged in as Google user while in Private mode.

You can get more results by logging in as a Google user in Private Browsing & change user settings, which defeats the whole purpose of Private Browsing because Google will then be tracking all your results........to better serve you.   Total BS !!!

Can't change Safe search from strict to safe or vice versa in Private mode either.  Google again blocking this function now !!!

I've found absolutely conclusively that when I only get one page of images it's because I have private browsing on. - turn it off and  - bingo! - full search!!
Re: Google images only shows one page of results Tburg 3/7/12 8:17 AM
Thanks but I have never used Private Browsing. Actually I kind of like Chrome now that I'm used to it.  It has a lot more extensions now too.

I also developed this problem over the past couple weeks on Windows 7 (IE9). Actually, javascript was barely working on google. Solution? Enable DOM storage in Internet Options->Advanced.
(Enable Native XMLHTTP support might also be needed)

I FIXED MINE!!

I am using Firefox and went to my "Add-Ons" in the Firefox menu and disabled everything. I then clicked on "Restart now". I tried to search images again and it worked! I had to go back and enable my add-ons and some of them updated when I did that. It must have been a compatibility issue with an add-on for me. I hope that helps someone else!
