hi! it was intermittent…i searched from the main window and it timed out, but my internet was fine (i used a different search engine and it worked ok). then i got that 502 error from, so fairly certain it wasn’t me :slight_smile: thanks for the fast response, though! i do enjoy using your browser and search engine! if it keeps working, i’ll keep using it!!!
