Same here too.

Following experimentation, the following things work:
  • using Google directly from its main page
  • performing the search, then remove blank.html from the address and try again.
  • using Incognito for the search
  • using "Paste and search" or "Search Google for..." functions in the contextual menu - for example, type your query, highlight, copy, and then right-click and hit "Paste and Search"
