Default Search this website

I can no longer, as per the title, search this website using the tool atop this forum. I get a banner saying "this connection is insecure" etc, and then only get greyed out google results unrelated to the forum?

I had this after changing to the https version of the Forum. Clear your cookies and it should stop being a pain.

I have changed the form action of the Google Search form from http://www.google.com/cse to https://www.google.com/cse

Hopefully that will stop the warning as the search is also through an SSL connection.

It works OK for me in Firefox and Chrome on Windows 10 too.

It could be something specific with the software on your computer or a browser add-on or something.

I've had this when there's been a problem with the Google servers. The search just returns the paid ads with no real results. I haven't experienced it recently though.

Thanks guys.

Paul Stenning, yes it must be, as the search box works fine with other browsers other than Firefox
