I'm curious if you know a reason why SEARCH RESULTS SNAPBACK is never available to me. I tried reversing the option in Safari/Prefs/er uh Settings/General:
I use Tab Layout: Separate, I always show website titles in tabs and I open pages in tabs instead of windows automatically.
Changing that made no difference but I can't think of what else I could have messed up, er uh, changed to make this command unavailable. Not a critical issue--just curious.
brad: Make sure you use the address field to search, not a web page (like Google's home page). Don't skip the search results page as you must end up at a search results page for this to work. If you choose one of the results from the drop-down then you go right to the result.
I’m using the "Address and Search" field of the toolbar.
I open a new blank window, search a term there, open a resulting link, then a link within that page and a link within that page and SEARCH RESULTS SNAPBACK always remains grayed out. I find my ways...
brad: Don't open the "resulting link." Type your search term and then press Return to go to the search page. Unless you see Google's search page with the results first, and then select a result on that page, it won't work. There's nothing to "snap back" to if you don't visit the search results page.
on a blank page, in the "Address and Search" field, I enter the term. The result is Google’s page with all the results. I choose one of those links and then burrow down into deeper and deeper links but never does SEARCH RESULTS SNAPBACK become available.
UNTIL: I started to record my keystrokes & mac’s reactions so I could show you and after the first subsequent link, the SEARCH RESULTS SNAPBACK became available just like it’s supposed to!
It’s as if starting the record/capture process changed something because after shutting down the recording, it still works like a charm. I’m guessing nothing happened like I said and this was all a hallucination. I hope you didn’t get too consternated! After all this, I’m going to make damn sure I find a reason to use it! LOL!
