One of the real problems with this demographic is that, once they learn a method of doing something, they will repeat it endlessly rather than learn another way. I've actually had one person want to show me something on Yahoo!—she very carefully went to www.google.com,
typed in Yahoo!, clicked the first link in the results, and then proceeded to navigate the site. She told me that one of her kids or grandkids had taught her to "always use Google," so that's what she did. She made no distinction between a search box and the URL bar; to her, they were just regions of the screen where she could tell the computer where to go.
