I thought it was only me. Spent an hour or so trying to figure it out. Hopefully gets sorted out soon.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get address bar predictions to come back?

Thanks

I too am having similar issues and can't find a single suggestion that fixes the problem. When I type in the address bar, auto suggestions do appear, but they are only from my search history and bookmarks. None of them are search suggestions like when using google.com.

I did follow the instructions provided to enable Google Suggestions in the address bar, then use Ctrl+K to place the cursor in the Omnibox to conduct a search, and begin to enter query you will receive query suggestions. That is, when Google.com is the default search engine.

Thanks for the advice. I think you're referring to the desktop browser whereas we are all referring to the Chrome browser on the Nexus 5.

My search predictions seem to be back again which is good. Has anyone else got theirs back?
