Mail can perform Boolean searches, but only in message contents, not in headers (such as Subject, From, or Date). When using Boolean operators, always use uppercase — AND, OR, and NOT — so Mail doesn’t search for the actual words and, or, and not. You can use a minus sign (-) as a shortcut for AND NOT, so, if you type Jack -Jill in the Search field, you’ll ...
This is a bug in safari. Currently the workaround is to open Safari > Preferences > Search and disable "Include Safari Suggestions". http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/27/apple-safari-suggestions-bug/
I had the same issue since this morning, I guess it could be something "malfunctioned" or badly processed data arriving from Google suggestions: Got rid of it by going to: Safari -> Preferences -> Search Here everything was ticked, I unticked all, then reticked "Include search engine suggestions" only, the problem stopped. Edit: Safari suggestions was the ...
I had exactly the same (but on Yosemite), and found this (https://discussions.apple.com/message/29693684#29693684) resolved it. Uncheck Use Safari Suggestions in the Search tab in Safari Preferences. Certainly not a solution to the problem, but gets around it until more concrete information comes out..
In Finder try using this: Kind is Folder Name ends with son This should display all folders ending with "son". Try also, begins with and contains for similar searches.

The default "Search with Google" should be listed in the Keyboard Shortcuts under the Services tab. You can un-check it and it shouldn't show up in the menu (This doesn't delete it however, just hides it from the menu).
Did you have a chance to try free 'Find and Replace' utility? Web site: http://findandreplace.sourceforge.net
I don't think it's possible using Finder, but you can easily find these folders via Terminal find . -name '*.mp3' | sed 's|/[^/]*$||' | sort -u Some explanations: find lists all files (and their paths) ending in mp3 in the current folder and everything "beneath" it sed strips away the last part of each line produced by find which does not contain a / ...
You have found what I consider to be a bug in the spotlight importer for several types of documents that Preview can use. I tested making an annotation with a slightly nonsensical word that spotlight had zero matches for on my Mac. (at least until this text gets indexed as a safari history item) I tested a PDF and a PNG file with text annotations and none ...
