    Please can the address bar and live search bar have the ability to be moved
    elsewhere on the page? I have musculorskelatal problems with my neck and I
    am finding it very difficult to have to contunually concentrate so high up on
    the page. I prefer to use the internet explorer search bars as I have found
    them easier for the control of data (i.e wiping history, cookies etc for data
    protection); but may have to start using alternative search bars which are
    easier to relocate or already centred on the page. Even if the option was
    just to reposition it above the command bar (where the menu toolbar can
    currently appear) or on the status bar, this would be a great help

    Hi S,

    There is a tweak to place addon toolbars at the bottom of the IE window or
    you could use an existing side search bar replacement. Thanks for pointing
    out your requirements. I will get around to letting the Accessibility sites
    know of the fix.

    Ok I added the address bar to the task bar at the bottom of my screen. Am I
    correct that this was what you meant? (On the task bar, I right clicked the
    mouse, selected toolbars and selected address)

    If I have done it right then I have a new problem!

    I can use the address bar on the task bar to type in addresses and go to the
    websites, but the address doesn't refresh or keep track as I move from page
    to page. This means that if I follow links on a page or open a new tab, the
    wrong address is shown on the task bar whilst the one at the top of int expl
    keeps up.

    It's rather confusing to be on one site but seeing completely the wrong name
    in the address bar. Especially if the address in ie is saying you have a
    secure conection but the one on the task bar is saying you haven't.

    Perhaps I didn't get what you meant and I've done it wrong but if I have
    followed your suggestion properly, can you or anyone else help me with this
    new hiccup?

    Cheers S.
