I search Start Page and it gave me the following result.

As far as I can tell it is indeed just the old Address Bar – just with extra functions built in by the Chromium engine so it can be used for more than simple entering of addresses.  For example you can apparently also do maths calculations in it.

The important thing is that you are not looking for another edit field to type in, just consider it as the address bar as before.

HTH?  No, sorry not in the least. I have no idea what the omnibox is.  I thought it was the address bar, apparently not.  I only use Edge if I E is not accepted by a website.

Hi All

 

I’ve pasted a work-around for the problems we’ve been having until the next JAWS Update.

1. From Edge 79, go to address omnibox and type “edge://flags” (without quotes and EXACTLY AS SHOWN).

2. From experiments edit field, type “UI Automation” and press Tab.

3. From Native UI Automation combo box, choose “disabled” and restart Edge if prompted.

list end

 

HTH
