Apple Mac Address Book SEARCH does not work anymore

Apple Address Book Search Fix

Recently my Address Book on my iMac computer started acting strange. Every time I tried to search for a contact the search would not respond so I tried a few things and below are two options for you to try. I hope this helps as I know this was frustrating to me, but as usual there is always a way to fix it.

Mac Address Book Search Field Fix 1

Open System Preferences -> iCloud -> uncheck Contacts then it will prompt if you want to keep or delete your contacts (I chose Keep Contacts) wait a few seconds and then turn it back on. -> This worked for me, and it should work for you.

Mac Address Book Search Field Fix 2

Try deleting the cache associated with the Address Book.

Go to   ~/Library/Caches/

For Lion v10.7x:  To find the Home folder in OS X Lion, open the Finder, hold the Option key, and choose Go > Library

Move the Cache.db file to the Trash.

Now see if you can search your contacts.

I hope this helped please leave a comment below to let me know if this worked or if you have a better suggestion for others if this does not do the trick. Thank you for visiting
