Google settings icon not visible

Anyone know where the Google gear icon that displayed settings is gone? I'm trying to disable the wretched Google Instants (for the umpteenth time) but the icon's been removed by some meddling doofus.

Go to the Google homepage and click on 'settings' in the bottom right-hand corner. Then click on 'Search settings' where you can disable the instant results option.

Thank you, just a tad confused about whether if I make Google my homepage it will remove my current Firefox homepage???

You can only have one homepage per browser, but there's nothing to stop you running two browsers, using a different homepage for each one.
