    Did you click the Settings link on google.com and choose "On" for "Query suggestions in search box"?

    The location shouldn't matter. I have mine as off too. I don't know what else it could be. I looked through the Dolphin settings and didn't see anything.

    I prefer not to view mobile versions of most pages, so I turn that off...but what sucks is that it changes the google homepage. The suggestions no longer appear for me unless I change my settings back to "mobile view".

    If I set my user agent to "desktop", I get suggestions. If I change it to Android or iPhone, I don't get them.

    Open Dolphine, Click MENU. then settings...then on the 1st screen, you should see "USER AGENT" somewhere. You should have 3 choices

    Android
    iPhone
    Desktop
