When I type in the toolbar like "this is a test". I would think it would do a google search for this. Instead for me just goes to "google" with no search term. To make things worse if I try to type in google it usually forces my cursor to the url bar to type it there.

So I get a never endless loop.

Scroll to the bottom and make a new Google search with the following


Make it default.

This fixed it for me.
