Web Search doesn't work as expected

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

 

Check in Alfred's Features > web search preferences to see if the web searches are enabled and that the keyword hasn't been changed...

 

Also, if you continue typing past the keyword, does that work... i.e. Show Alfred and type:

 

google bananas

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.

Would you mind showing me a screenshot? I want to see if the local results have any relevance to the typed term.

 

Also, if you have selected additional items in Alfred's Features > Default Results > Extras (inc the Bookmarks), try temporarily unticking these.

I'm having the same problem.
 
Updated version and news version of Mac OS X
 
Nothing happens when I type anything in the search bar.
 
I have just purchased Alfred 2 and I have altered none of the default settings
 
Any tips?

 

 

 

Hi there,

 

Could you please give me an example of what you're typing, what results do show up in Alfred and what happens when you hit the Return key? You can pop an email to info@alfredapp com with any screenshots if you prefer, and I'll be happy to help you out.

 

Cheers,

Vero
