I am very limited in my computer knowledge - I'll try and explain my problem as best I can. My location bar has mysteriously changed/gotten smaller/shorter and does not show the address of the website I am visiting. For example, I used to be able to copy and paste from there if I wanted to share a website with someone. Now all I have is a website symbol, does not show "http://------" and when I click on it I get the message "This website does not supply identity information. Your connection to this website is not encrypted".

You can place the mouse between the location bar and the (Google) search bar. The mouse pointer will change to an resize icon and you can drag that icon to the right with the left mouse button pressed.
