    Wut? I have 7.8 and Bing is exactly like it was before. I'm not sure what you're talking about. Perhaps some images will help.

    I know that there is this "trick" with wp8 to make google appear on the search button where u change in internet explorer ur search provider and change ur region to Russia. I did this, without changing to google and saw the Bing home page would show up on my 8X, so maybe change regions and see what's up? :)

    by any chance you are using separate country/ languages in 7.5 and 7.8? i read somewhere, if there is no bing app for a specific country or language, it will redirect to bing webpage version.
    i used English (india) for both and the bing app functionality is identical in case of both 7.5 and 7.8
