This is a 9700 forum, so you're posting on the wrong place.
I don't own a 9780 and have 9700, but have OS6 so what I have on my phone should be the same as yours. I am not sure what search bar you're referring to. On the home screen there is no search bar, just a little magnifying glass button on the right hand side which brings up search if pressed. Do you mean the search bar that comes up when you start typing characters in the home screen? If that's the one you're referring to then I don't think it's possible to hide it. Universal search is one the key features brought in by OS6 and for many users this is one of the best features.
