Even though I have signed in, cleared all cache/cookies Google Instant still doesn't work for me. How can it be fixed?


The URL I use is www.google.com.vn.

I see the dropdown keyword suggestion list but the search result doesn't change when I select a new keyword.

I'm using Google Chrome browser with the default settings.

The strange thing is that I can use Google Instant at home while I cannot do this in my office!

What is the current url you are entering in Google Instant? – phwd Sep 29 '10 at 5:33
Do you even see the option (turn on/off)? Do you see the auto-suggest drop down? Have you got javascript disabled? – Benjol Sep 29 '10 at 6:07
You can try another browser like Google Chrome – chanchal1987 Sep 29 '10 at 8:05
@chanchal1987: In fact, I'm using Chrome – Nam G VU Sep 29 '10 at 14:58
@Nam Gi VU: Actually I am from India. I tried http://google.co.in and http://google.com.vn . Both works for me. You can try http://google.com or http://google.co.in or https://google.com . – chanchal1987 Sep 29 '10 at 16:07

From the Google Instant FAQ -

Google Instant is starting to roll-out to users on Google domains in the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia who use the following browsers: Chrome v5/6, Firefox v3, Safari v5 for Mac and Internet Explorer v8. Please note, users on domains other than Google.com can only access Google Instant if they are signed in to a Google Account. We will continue to add new domains and languages over the next several months.

If you are not seeing it, its likely that either Google Instant has not rolled-out in your country or you are not signed-in while searching or you may be using a browser that they don't support.

But I am from India and I can access Google Instant from www.google.co.in and www.google.com.vn both. – chanchal1987 Sep 29 '10 at 12:40
I signed in already and it doesn't work still – Nam G VU Sep 29 '10 at 15:10
