Can't get search function to work Answered

I can't seem to get the search function to work. For example, I put in the search term "car radio" and it returns all kinds of irrelevant results like "Fuzzy Cover for a Hot Water Bottle". How can I get accurate search results?

When I preform the search term "car radio" from the homepage search bar I get these results.

Can you paste the URL string of the results you are getting with the "Fuzzy Cover for a Hot Water Bottle". Also, do you have any browser add-ons installed like AdBlock or LastPass?

What operating system and browser are you using.
Sometimes you have the catch the homepage search bar just right so it does not auto type the search suggestion. The search box does work where it appears on any of the other pages.

Mac OS 10.6 on one computer and 10.8 on another. I have not found any page where it works. Can you provide a link to a page where it works? BTW, when you say, "you have the catch the homepage search bar just right so it does not auto type the search suggestion"? What is "just right"?

I think you will have to wait for the staff to respond to your troubles for the Mac.
When I use my ipad/chrome to view the site, it gets wonky sometimes.
