Windows 7: Search Box missing in IE9

Search Box missing in IE9

I see that this problem has been discussed for over a year. HOWEVER, I just installed IE9 a week ago (previously used Firefox) and despite what everyone says, the address box does NOT work for searching. Has anyone found a way around this "great" new innovation by IE?

Thank you!

I really appreciate your help. Too bad IE doesn't think to give out this information. I couldn't even get this information while on a tech support chat! Again, thanks!
