Try zooming your the Safari window (click the green button at the top left of the window's frame) or try putting Safari into full-screen mode (click arrow thingy at top right of window frame) to see if the text box reappears. You can switch in and out of full-screen mode by typing control-command-F.

If this doesn't do the trick, navigate to a SPECIFIC page in Google search (start at www.google.com), then open Safari Preferences, click the General tab, and click the "Set to current page" button.

Hi there.
Google's advice on Error 102, is to reinstall it or reset your modem and/or wireless router by unplugging them for 2 minutes, plug them back in, leave for another 2 minutes and try to connect again.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Make google my home page


Hi Julia

Thanks for a straight-forward question.
Open Safari and wait till the page loads up.
Type in www.google.co.uk (or .com if you're not in the UK) and wait for the page to load.
Once fully loaded go to the Safari menu and select "Preferences"
Choose the "General" button and look for the line that says "Home Page"
Beneath it is a button called "Set To Current Page" give it a prod and the job is done. Close prefernces and open a new webpage to check that it works OK.

Easy peasy.
