    I'm so frustrated right now. You know where you set your default search engine. When I put something in there for a search it shows on the tab of the browser and the page is blank.

    Now if I use the google toolbar most of the time it does what I described above also. By chance if it brings up search results I can only search what's on the first page and cannot move on to any other page. It will do nothing. Am I the only one this is happening too?

    This is a fresh install of Win7 64bit.

    I've never bothered with the browser's own search tool. I simply go to the Dogpile site (which uses multiple search engines) and work from there.

    What browser are you using Rilla and what do you have set as your default search engine?

    Hi Stapp,

    I'm using IE8 and set Google for the default search engine.

    I tried using Bing as the default and it still done the same thing.

    I seen a lot of complaints from others that they cannot move beyond the first page of search results.

    Thank you, this works great and I can move beyond the first page of search results. This is a keeper:thumb:
