Hello Alex,
Thank you for providing feedback regarding your experience with bing.com/maps and Internet Explorer. I did test this scenario on Windows 8.1 IE 11.0.9600.16476 and after I provided two destinations (Start, Finish) and clicked Go. I was able to close Internet Explorer and return to the maps page and upon pressing the first number in the address I did see the entire address listed as an option.
This information appears to be stored in a cookie and since you are not seeing the correct behavior I would suggest checking Internet Options - Privacy - cookie settings to check if any sites are blocked or if any other settings have been changed.
On my test machine I am set to Medium, with no sites listed under 'sites'. Under the advanced setting Override automatic cookie handing is unchecked.

Could you check these settings and retest. If you continue to see this issue can you post your IE version found under About Internet Explorer menu. Also if you open a new tab to bing.com/maps after completing a successful directions lookup are you still required to type in the entire address?

Best regards,
The Internet Explorer Team
