I have both IE 10 and Firefox 41.0.2 installed on my Windows 7 laptop. I also have the Firefox New Tab Override Add-on installed. Without the add-on, new tabs are displayed as blank pages. With the add-on, you can display your home page on each new tab that you open.
When I navigate to google.com, the google home page opens as expected. When I start typing a search term into the search box on the page, the search box "moves" to the top of the window and displays a list of matches. When I choose or finish entering my search term and click the magnifying glass, nothing happens. Just a blank screen.
If I enter a search term into the search box that is on the address bar, however, searches work as expected.
This happens in both IE and in Firefox and is relatively new behavior. I don't recall having this problem until recently (like last 2 or 3 days maybe).
If I use Bing or Yahoo for searches this behavior doesn't occur. It only occurs with google.
I've attached some screen prints.
Any help would be appreciated
