Hello.

When performing a Google search in FF 'and' in Opera, the following is what I see:

The name of the website with the website link below it (and a colored website icon on the left side).

This would 'appear' to be a new layout since, even after clearing cookies, refreshing the page, closing the browser, and rebooting the computer, the issue persists

Q: Are other FF users seeing the same layout when performing a Google search (If not, what is the layout?).

A:

Q. Is there a way to 'revert' back to the original layout?

Yes, Google has recently changed the layout of their search result page and now you see two sections, first the URL with the website favicon in front followed by the details you previously had. You can possibly hide the first part via CSS (userContent.css or otherwise), but then you lose the menu to inspect the cached version. So best is to get used to the change as this is likely not the first time and won't be the last time to be confronted with such a change.

Thanks for the confirmation.

As a side note, do 'you' prefer the 'old' layout or the 'new' layout?

  • Why doesn't the link direct to an article?

The link is to a Google results page for the past month, so you can check whether new results appear or adjust your search terms.

The layout doesn't really matter to me as this isn't the first time I come across such a change. I use a CSS counter on the H3 element via userContent.css to keep track of the position and that still works.


/*you can add more Google domains*/
@-moz-document domain(google.com), domain(google.co.uk) {
 body{counter-reset:res}
 #search div.g h3:before {
  content:" ["counter(res)"]:"; counter-increment:res;
  color:#444; background-color:#eee; margin-right:3px; font-size:14px;
 }
