I did double-check the Features > Web Search preferences, all of the searches are enabled and keywords are intact. The behavior is reproducible, so when I type "google bananas" or "twitter mangos" all I see is local results, the search UI is never triggered. It's like the feature just doesn't work. So odd.
Hello, the web search feature seems to be broken. When I activate Alfred and type in a defined keyword such as "google" or "maps", the web search UI is never toggled and all I see is local results. OSX Yosemite 10.10.3. Thanks, Will
