I have recently been finding myself stymied trying to perform searches for c#-related things in Chrome. The problem is that the omnibox truncates the # and everything after it.

This means typing c# foo" in the omnibox in Chrome and hitting enter returns highly unhelpful search results for "c" Google.

Any tricks or extensions that would allow me to type "c# foo" into the omnibox and return results that are related to c# and foo? Am I the only person with this problem?

I used to have that problem with Google searches in IE, but it got better on it's own. I don't use Chrome, but does wrapping C# in double quotes help? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 3 '12 at 19:05
It works for me on Windows using Chrome 19.0.1084.52 m. I get results for the whole cearch term, not truncated after #. – Martin Jun 3 '12 at 19:13
It works for me too, so which version are you using? Any special settings for searches through your Omnibox? – slhck Jun 3 '12 at 19:15
Do you have instant search on? Do you have any experimental flags in chrome://flags turned on? – Caleb Jares Jun 3 '12 at 20:15

Thank you for the thoughts and qeustions.

I'm also running 19.0.1084.52 m. No special settings like flags turned on. Instant search is off.

And it doesn't seem to be plug-ins b/c it does it in Incognito Mode. However your questions did lead me to start looking for the problem in other places.

And it turns out it's the router: It's a PFSense router running Squid Proxy with transparent proxy and Proxy Filter. When I had Squid temporarily disabled for my IP, c# searches started working! (Why this is, or how to fix it sounds like another question after some more research.)
