• The search engine module uses an Internet Explorer window that's already open!

StatBar simply asks Windows to open a website using the default browser, it cannot control in which window that website is opened. If you open the Internet Settings (under the Tools - Internet Options menu in IE), you will find an option "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" under Browsing, on the Advanced tab. If you switch that option off, a new window should be opened when you use the search function in StatBar.
