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.

  • Does the URL shown when you land on the google page have something like "www.google.com/webhp?" at the front of it?
