    Default Google search bar text showing up as dots?

    Every time anything is put into the google search bar it shows up as dots. Did I accidentally turn on a setting?

    I have an Evo 4G and was using the regular browser in case that helps.

    Default google search bar - dots instead of text


    I'm facing the exact same issue with my HTC inspire 4G.

    The bug happened yesterday and only affects Google mobile homepage.
    As soon as I send a search request then the Google search bar works fine.

    Any fix please ?

    Thank you.

    Hi jewjitsu

    Just to let you know , this issue has been fixed by the Google team. So the issue has nothing to-do with your device but comes from Google end.
    You just have to clear you cache and your cookies in your browser settings.
    Then refresh Google.com or Google.com/m and that's it

    Mine cleared up last night, on its own. Glad it wasn't HTC, I like their phones.
