Yes, it's a new timeout introduced by Google. This page explains: https://searchtempest.zendesk.com/hc/en ... ng-forever

As mentioned there, we're working on better solutions.

(Also, if you look at the top of your screenshot, there's an explanation with a timer and a link to that same help page.)

man that really sucks.
I've been using this site for years to search the country and now it gets 1/2 and stops.
Then I cant even do a new search.
Or is gets to 1 page complete and stops....really annoying.

Google needs a slap it the mouth

Yes, once you hit the block, there will be a 5 minute period before anything loads - same search or new. That said, if you wait the 5 minutes, you can press a "try again" button in that yellow notice at the top, and continue with your same search.

We are planning to have a better solution in place by the end of next week. It will still be a bit of a hassle, but should be more usable than it is now!
