Google Search is not working today ???
Everyone, thanks for this debugging help. May I ask you to post the specific search terms you used that weren't working? The HTML source posted by kelseymh makes me think the issue might be related to the instructables (or forum topics, etc) being returned from the search, rather than the browser.

Sigh. As of this morning, the searches I had used which produced failures are working just fine:bugsbug reportssliderssliders inurl:AccessibilityEither everything is back to normal (did you roll out some unrelated bug fix?), or it was intermittent, and therefore hard to troubleshoot.
Search isn't working for me either. Mac OS X 10.6.4, Firefox 3.6.3 or Safari 5.0.3.
. Works for me. WinXP SP3 & FF3.6.15
Could you (or Kiteman) do a "view source" and see if the "HTML" (it isn't really) looks the same as what I posted?
. I get what appears to be a well-formed page (first few lines below). A search for "tiles" comes up MT. <!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM "about:legacy-compat"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="https://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml"> <head> <title>Search Instructables</title> <style type="text/css" media="all"> @import url( "/static/css/instructables.css?" ); @import url( "/static/css/instructabot.css?" ); ...
Yep, so do I, now.
You might have seen something weird if you were trying to get source code when Rachel was updating the website. Yeah?
See below. Was that at 11:30 this morning?
She emailed that she pushed a fix for an issue that came up at 1220...depending on how long it took, and how log she waited after it finished...it could easily have been around then.
I am having this problem now. Search results show nothing but a blank page where hits should be. :(
Yeah, I just did some more checking with Firefox, and while certain things return the normal set of results, other search queries were blank. I tried the same searches in Chromium at it seemed to work fine. I passed the information on to the Dev Team, hopefully they'll have some time soon.
See the notepad file...
mines not working either
Ubuntu Linux running both Chromium 10.0.648.127 and Firefox 3.6.15 here - no such bug.
Well, it seems to be working again, at least for me (FF on Mac).
<tiles:insert xmlns:tiles="http://struts.apache.org/tags-tiles" definition=".search"><tiles:put name="title" value="Search Instructables" /><tiles:put name="titlebar" value="/common /null.html" /><tiles:put name="body" value="/pages/search /search_body.jsp" /></tiles:insert>
I wonder if it's a Mac-only bug?I'm using the same version of FF, in XP, and it's fine.
As of this time-stamp, the search is working.If it still isn't working for you, could you add a few details, such as your OS & browser?
I noticed this too. Only source code that loads is:
