Google Search page broken - fpout - Apr. 26, 2013 08:12 AM

Google Search results page is completely broken since yesterday 04-25-2013 (see attached image)

Header is broken and the top horizontal navigation menu displays fully open and vertical. It seems to be called <div id="top_nav">.
The top of the page is affected, too. Search box is fullscreen wide.

It happens on both https & http search, and disabling this filter ("Google Search: Alternate Display 12.08.19 (multi) [sd ku] (d.s)") renders the page normally.

Using Firefox 12, Sidki's set 2011-12-22rc1.

boy does that look UGLY...

may i ask what i could do to the "publicly maintained" Google Alternate Display filters ( ) that would get you to use them?

the "publicly maintained" set is a more all-encompassing from-the-ground-up approach whereas anything keeping the "original sidki filters" 'alive' are all "surface fixes" (for lack of better wording)...

Looks like they made some changes.

Thumbnail feature appears to have been removed. There is a new box for cached and similar.

Broke because one of my expressions matched new (to me) firefox specific code. Try

Active = TRUE
Multi = TRUE
URL = "$TST(hCT=*html)(www|encrypted).google.(*/)+{1}(intl/(*/)+{1}(^?)|search\?(^tbm=isch|*\&tbm=isch)|webhp|(^?))$SET(keyword=$TST(keyword=\1.(i_layout:[#*:0].)+\2)\1.i_layout:2.\2)"

Many thanks, JJoe.

Updated Alternate display filter and it seems to work perfectly at first try. Back to what it looked like a few days ago (See attached image).

Really many thanks, and I do appreciate rapidity of answer.

@ ProxRocks:
Thanks for the solution. I have seen your thread some time ago, and downloaded the set of filters, but found no time to try it.

I am happy with the dark gray appearance, as seen on my screenshot. It find it quite friendly for my tired eyes.

When I find some time, I'll give a try to your set.
As for now, the damage introduced by the Google fellows is repaired for today, and the road goes on ...
