wtf google

As you can see, descriptions are missing from google search. This only occurs on a certain google account which I am signed into (I've cropped that from the image for privacy).

If I use incognito mode or another account, it works fine.

I therefore assume there is a setting in my account, but I have no idea where it is. Please help!

  • Since it works in Incognito, I assume you have some extension blocking the data. Can you disable your extensions and try again? – Traveling Tech Guy Feb 26 '15 at 22:24
  • @DavidPostill I just checked that dup. This is similar. The other one is unanswered though and his issue was intermittent across his browser. Mine is local to my account – MrJD Feb 26 '15 at 22:28
  • @TravelingTechGuy I turned off all extensions; didn't help :( – MrJD Feb 26 '15 at 22:30
  • I have the exact same problem. It's not related to extensions—it only happens when I'm logged into my Google account. The same problem happens in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. If I'm logged in, there are no descriptions; if I'm logged out, everything works as normal. – Andrew Feb 27 '15 at 18:39

Google has fixed the issue themselves.

If you're encountering this issue after googles fix. I was able to get some luck by reseting all settings in Chrome.

Happy computing.
