I have to enter my modem's IP address into the navigation bar, but for some reason keeps converting to a google search. I enter: 192.168. 0.1. when I press return: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=192.168.+0.1. I have gone through all my settings, and cannot find a way out of this! common sense would say that when I added the second "Search" bar next to the "Navigation/Search" bar, the search function would not apply anymore to the Navigation bar. Anyways, Please help if possible.... I'm frustrated!

That isn't happening here. I have never done that before but entering the router IP address without more gets a request for the user name and password to log into the router. I also have a separate search bar. I have the IP address bookmarked but I doubt that would make a difference. Have you selected "Search Suggestions" on the Search page of Options/Preferences?
