    Hello I'm wondering if there is a way to search bookmarks for a particular address on an iPad. I have an extensive list of bookmarks including too many duplicates to go through point by point. I am trying to search out a particular misdirect that has landed an icon on my Safari homepage favorites icon's list. The only way I can find it is if I can search my bookmarks and favorites is there a way to do that?

    Spotlight search doesn't look for favourites and bookmarks stored in Safari. If you put them on your homescreen, you're able to find them, though.

    What you can try to find your bookmarks and favorites is to write the first few letters into the search bar in Safari. It will show your bookmarked sites as result.

    Before you search for them, clear your Safari history to avoid too many results.

    The Google Search window located on the top of Safari disappeared. I like the Google search bar because that allowed one to search the web page for words.

    Is there a way to enable the Google Search Window?

    In iOS 7, search and address bar are the same. If you want to search, write the words into the search/address bar. An extra search bar can't be enabled. It's a feature of the latest software.
