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.

IE looks similar, I have used the same search words
I don't have a home page in any of my browsers, do you have the google toolbar installed in IE 11, is this windows 7 x 64? and your using IE 32 bit not 64 bit?
Is the bar locked?
It looks as if your missing a bar the google toolbar? Rightclick the top bar

It looks as if your typing into the address bar.
I have Google Toolbar with my Chrome with no home page set, so when I open Chrome it opens in a new tab by default, see how I donot have the home page house next to my search

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.
