    Ghost in the machine?

    Have you installed any new software on the one machine? Have you tried a resetting Edge? Ran any malware/spyware tests? A little more information will help us help you.

    Seems the last cumulative updates cripple the search box on Edge... weid stuff... I have the same exact problem, but only if you use the "blank page" on new tabs, if you enable news feeds and all the uselss stuff, the serch box is back.

    Man... this are really funny bugs...

    I think I got it back... check your internet explorer settings (yeah, IE), and in the tabs settings, set the page to "Tabs Page" Instead of the news feeds, I dunno if that could do the trick for you...
