Can't use 'Find' in IE8
I update to IE8 a few weeks ago. The find function worked at
first, but know it doesn't work at all -- whether through
Ctrl + F or Edit | Find. when I do either of those, nothing
happens.

Note that I'm aware that IE has been changed so that there's
no separate dialog box. The problem is that the text box
doesn't appear on the tab row, as it did earlier.

Any idea what the problem and the fix are?

Thanks.

That was both simple and effective.
