It's a new version - Jira 5.1 and below had a "simle search" screen which included components. In fact, it had ALL the available fields.
In this version, Atlassian have had a go at tidying/improving the simple search interface. I quite like the idea of concentrating on "important" fields, but I'm not sure how to define "important" - a lot of my users consider certain custom fields far more important than many system fields. That said, Components is important no matter what.
You could use the green hopper plugin which gives you a component view in the planning board which would be quite simple or if you fancy the more difficult route, you could try a plugin and create a report
or you could do a preset filter
although the components could change all the time.
I like to search by component all the time and it's a real nuisance to click the more button and then choose component option and then the component. for example in the issue navigator menu I have the option for assigneee which I never use. it would be very useful to be able to select the criteria for the issue navigator menu.
