There is no search bar on the small screen layout of openstreetmap.org at the moment. It would be nice to have some kind of search also on the mobile page.
Unfortunately, the default search result display as a sidebar is hardly usable on small screen devices (see #200), so a solution for that has to be found, too.
I suspect that there is probably already a ticket for this in trac.
The small screen view is, we have always known, incomplete, but to date nobody has stepped up to do more work on it after the initial implementation.
Although the most obvious manifestation of this is on small screen mobile devices, the problem can be replicated on any browser. The map area with all the tiles in it is too wide to display in the width available on a phone, so without rewriting that part of the application, the solution should be to move everything in the sidebar div to a location at the top of the screen.
The redesign branch (#498) which was merged today and will be deployed shortly introduces a search in the mobile interface, accessed from the top menu.
