I recently upgraded to 13.10 Saucy Salamander and as most of us know, it is the first Ubuntu version to truly use Smart Scopes. While this is useful and I do like parts of it, I don't want all of the results it brings.
So, I went over to the Filter Results bar and changed it to what I wanted (it was giving me online results over searching my computer and such, such not even bringing up Firefox when I searched for it) and then started the program I wanted.
Later I went back to search and all of those specifications I made were gone. It was bringing up online results first again and all of the defaults I had turned off were back on.
Here's a screenshot of what is happening:
I don't completely want to remove Scopes, as I have heard this can cause problems, but I really would like the functionality I need.
Also, when I go to, say the Applications Scope, it just shows this:
I can't browse my applications!
Please help me, as I really don't want to remove Scopes or even down-grade to 13.04!
