How can I disable searching when typing a question mark in the awesomebar?

I use a lot of keyword search engines. This means I can type something like `kagi foobar` to search Kagi for `foobar`. However the awesome bar has a "feature" where if you type a question mark (?) anywhere it instead uses the default search engine. This means that `kagi How do I cook a turkey?` searches my default search engine for "kagi How do I cook a turkey?" rather than searching Kagi (based on the `kagi` keyword). Is there a way to disable this behaviour?

I have searched about:config and "Search Shortcuts" in preferences doesn't have a `?`. I never use `?` as a shortcut to search (I just type the keyword for the engine I want) so completely removing it would be perfect.

You can install Kagi as a search engine and assign it a keyword which is not affected by question marks.

Thanks, that is a good workaround!

Unfortunately search engines don't sync via Firefox Sync while keyword search engines do, so it doesn't work well for my use case.

You can avoid triggering the default search engine by adding punctuation immediately after the question mark:

kagi How do I cook a tofurkey?.

kagi "How do I cook a tofurkey?"
