Google Results Change When Search Button is Clicked?

One of our websites has been up for a very long time. We work on it constantly and it has always ranked number one for a specific Google search. Since Google went to the new format that dislays results as you type the words, we have noticed a weird phenomenon. Our website comes up number one as you type the words, but changes position once you click the search button. It looks like Google is manipulating the search results after the click. I didn't think they were suppose to do this. Can anyone shed some light on this?

It's called autocomplete and/or Google Instant. It's supposedly based on how other searchers have searched. If you think it is changing the results this maybe because it is actually changing the query. You can test this by disabling autocomplete. Go to Google at this URL http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en
