Problem :

Last week, when I desired to search thing in Google through internet explorer, I got awfully astonished as I found there was no search bar for Google play store. I started exploring myself , what in the world could made Google search bar invisible. In fact, it works well in Firefox. So I am very certain that something is blocking it visibility.

Even if I having latest IE version, secure firewall, allow scripts, unable to find the way to make the search bar visible.

Can anyone help me to fix it?
