Google textbox disappears after search (Windows 7)

Dear experts,

Whenever I search something on Google using "Address bar" (Omnibox) the results appear but usually there's search textbox to correct the keywords.

For some reason, since yesterday the textbox doesn't appear after the search forcing me to go back to the Omnibox to do an alternative search.

No search textbox
I'm wondering if there's anything that can be done or if it is by design.

Thanks for your time and insights.

Thanks a lot, jci and Merete. It seems quite a few users had reported this problem at Google Chrome forum.

I had re-installed Chrome but the issue still remained but for some reason, I got the search textbox back.. Probably a browser update fixed it.
