macos – Google search page sometimes disappeared when clicking Safaris back button

Spread the love

I’m using Safari 16.3 (17614., 17614) on macOS Monterey 12.6.3 (21G419) but this problem already persists since many years and Mac systems.

I don’t know which version it was but it suddenly started with a new version of macOS (or was it even still Mac OS X?) where they also renewed Safari some years ago.

Here’s what I’m talking about: Sometimes I go to Safari browser, open a new window and type some keyword in Safaris address bar. Since this isn’t a URL typing enter will initiate a Google search. The link in the address bar changes to something like this:

Now, I click on any search result. This will open the page of the search result, e.g.:

Now, I want to return to the Google search results page. To do this I click the browsers back button once. I expect to land on the Google search results page but instead of that I see the browsers home window, the window I saw before I startet the Google search.

If I click the forward button I get to again. If I click the back button again there’s still only Safaris home window. The Google search link is also not visible in the browser search history.

This only happens from time to time and I have no idea on what this depends.

Do you know that behavior? Is this a bug? Is there a way, maybe a setting, to fix it?
