Why is the address window so narrow or short?
It's not been like that.

Yes the width can be changed.

Whether it stays that way upon re-boot is unknown right now.

That's how it is, you can do...
Right click any open tab and click Show Tabs on a Seperate Row

I do not think it has been that short. When I past a URL I can hardly read the website if the URL is very long. It's not been that way until today I think.
I would have noticed it right off.
There's barely room to put cursor and copy paste URL.
And I know after seeing the tabs on the 2nd line it has never been that way either.

Well it's been a while since I used IE9, but even with IE11 it's exactly the same, that's why there is the option to move tabs to a new row so the address bar is full width
It's one or the other - you cannot change the width.
Good find, forgotten about that!

It did hold it's length upon reboot.

It won't let me give myself a few of the points.
