    Odd, green search icon in Safari preferences
    Hello all

    This doesn't appear to be causing any issues but is a little odd. In Safari prefs the icon for the search tab is 'wrong' - it's green, aliased and rotated (or possible squashed in the y-axis). Anyone got any ideas what's happened here?

    This is Safari 13.0.4 and the only extensions I'm running are 1Password and Grammarly.

    What are the settings for Grammerly? Does it offer search suggestions? Can you disable to test? You may need to restart Safari.

    I just installed 13.0.4 on my MBair, and have the original "magni-find" glass, so that has to be a plug-in effecting the icons.
    Safari is still a bit slower than edge chromium.

    i fixed everything on the macbook my self and repaired many in the past.

    I installed Grammerly to see what appeared, my icon for search is unchanged and the icon you have is NOT Grammerly. I'm thinking something else is going on. Grammerly is a service that checks for spelling and grammar errors in what you type. It is widely used and not harmful at all. Sometimes annoying, like someone who is constantly checking what you say, but not malicious in any way.

    Did you download Grammerly or or is it something you needed to get from the macOS App Store?

    I would have to guess some kind of issue with a cache (icon, system, safari, user?). Not sure where exactly to start. If restarting Safari or the Mac itself doesn't fix it, running Onyx' tools should do the trick.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Grammarly is in the app store, although I got it directly from Grammarly.com. Basically it checks all writing you do for grammar errors, including posts in websites, and can suggest corrections when the grammar or spelling is not optimum. it works pretty well and doesn't cost anything for the basic functions, which is all I need at the moment.
