    I've had it before but I forgot how to fix it.
    Doing a Google search on the issue doesn't turn up any results and clearing things like browsing history and temporary etc doesn't work either! D;

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    I figured out how to fix it. :specialed:

    Haha but seriously- it's kind of annoying because I have no idea what caused it.

    You swept away the prospect of using Bing so quickly and cleanly that I'm seriously laughing my ass off over here. Wish I knew how to solve your problem as thanks, but sadly I got nothing.

    You want to be clearing cookies, not history. But I use Google Images a lot and it does strange things like this from time to time - it's one of those things that can fix itself overnight or bother you until you search for something different. It's a notoriously buggy system they use (and probably one of those things that's designed to only work "properly" in Chrome)



    As an aside I found myself using Yandex Images the other day (it's best not to ask why). It's exactly like Google Images was about three or four years ago - strangely refreshing. Results aren't as good though... unless you're looking for knock-off Mega Drives

    Thing is it was working- now it isn't~ As far as I know I've done nothing to settings and it was fine yesterday until last night..
    I appreciate the offer of another search but Google is what I've used for so long- and for it to suddenly do this is kind of frustrating...

    Cleared everything...including cookies! D;

    It seems to me they also use useragent detection; when using IE11 all of their new designs are broken and the site looks like it did 2-3 years ago (old style search narrowing and image searching). Using IE10 useragent gets the new designs working again.
