Google Search Problems
I had this happen a few times before but the problem went away. Today, I just can't use Google as I get this (see the screenshot below) for every letter/symbol I enter in the search bar.
Is anybody else having this problem?
Any ideas about how to fix it?

no you're not the only one. It's definitely an intermittent problem with me and also the 'bug' only lasts for a few minutes. I just simply sigh with exasperation and then head on over to Simple Browser.

It works here. I just use the bookmark in the browser. Did you go right to the search or were you in another part of Google or logged into gmail? Since I am in Canada, the Google.com gets redirected to Google.ca. Perhaps it is a problem with the US site.

Since your page shows the graphic beside the search box, it looks like something didn't parse right on the page, ie didn't get the whole graphic loaded and to the line feed. Are you on the beta by any chance?
Here is what I get, same as on Firefox on my Mac.

You don't need Google search. Set Google as your default search engine in the browser and then when you use the built-in "Universal Search" simply scroll down and hit Google. You can do the voice tutorial too.

Saying that I don't have any issues probably won't help you, huh? But I don't have any issue. Sorry....
But what may help out is saying how it it set up, and see if anything is different.
-I am using the US google.com (not google.ca).
-I am using the bookmark that came default (blank icon, never shows a screenshot or even a Google icon like Bing/Yahoo/eBay did with their respective icons/logos).
-I have the most recent Beta OS 2
-*I use iGoogle. (This has me set my background to a picture, and so I don't have animations or whatever Google theme of the day is.)
Also, could there be an app screwing it up? Honestly, I don't know if that is possible. I do know that yesterday I downloaded an app and then that caused Facebook and App World to close. Neither would open for more than a second (Error 9) before closing, and the same was true for the app I downloaded. I restarted and all is fine, but it appeared an app effected other apps (didn't effect the Browser app strangely enough). Could have been a coincidence too for all I know.

I think google had a virus. When I opened IE (which I usually use firefox) MSE found a virus and cleaned it. I closed IE, reopen and got a repeat.
Maybe coincidence. Finally got it to stop by deleting the windows/temp files and then running ccleaner. Also ran malwarebytes and superantispyware after and neither found anything.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

- I am using the bookmark I myself created.
- I on the stable 1.0.8
- I am not using iGoogle (logged out).
- I don't have many apps installed and definitely didn't install anything new lately.
