    My Bing search updated back in July and everything was fine until a week or two ago. Now when I search instead of the nicely formatted results I have the pivot labels across the top and a smaller version of them vertically along with a search box and "submit query" button. I tried rebooting, doing the volume down + power button thing, and so far nothing has worked. Don't wanna do a full reset. Any ideas?

    hammerhand,

    got the same problem on my nokia 822. no idea, assume its something that came down with the Amber update. I've tried the same solutions as you have, including clearing both Bing/Search history as well as dumping all the browser history, etc. Short of resetting, not sure what to do at this point. Still digging.

    this is a feature. I think it may not know what to do with the word search

    For the most part the update is pretty cool. It is contextual and provides instant answers to currency/metric conversions, definitions, math, etc...

    um, no, its not a feature. did you read the first post and look at the picture? our rendered results do not look like the engadget link you posted. it obviously a screw up on how the page of results are rendered, probably a CSS issue (assuming the Bing app is HTML5/CSS).

    Problem seems to have resolved itself overnight. Still had this going on yesterday at lunch. This morning, search is back to being correctly formatted, no extra junk at the top. Image and Video results are now cleaner, aligned, and sharper. No updates to my phone, so must have been coming from the Bing server/search content.
