In Safari, I have set my homepage to: So, when I search from the homepage, my search results route over HTTPS and I also see my +1s

However, if I use the Safari's right-side search bar (which is set to Google), it does not route my searches over HTTPS. In addition, I do not see my +1s

I'm having the same issue.

I solved this problem by using SafariOmnibar. By default it also uses http for Google search. But you can edit the search provider plist file to use https instead. The plist file is located at /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/SafariOmnibar.bundle/Contents/Resources/SearchProviders.plist

Another choice is to use Glims to add custom search engine. But it maybe overkill to install this plugin just to use https for Google search.
