I don't understand. What do you mean, "search isn't possible"? Here is one way around the word "browse" in that button:

You can not do it. The browser security restricts it and there is nothing you can do from a code point of view to change it.

IE requires browser to be in the correct security zone of trusted sites. That is a manual change.
