With keyword.enabled set to false, my guess is that your ISP is redirecting those searches to a search engine that pays them for directing searches there.

That started happening about three years ago here in North America, first with RoadRunner, then one by one the other ISP's started doing it too. The ISP's refer to it as as a "Domain Helper Service". Most ISP's have a way to Opt Out of that "feature". This is the page where I can Opt Out with my ISP.

Check with your ISP and ask if that is what they are doing, and where there Opt Out page is located at their web site.

It is not an ISP problem: 1- It worked OK with Firefox 3.6;

2- I installed Firefox 5 on another computer, using the same network, with the same options, AFAIK, and it works OK.

I suppose an option set earlier may be causing the problem, but I could'nt find clues.

Try a new Firefox Profile, to see if the problem is with your current Profile.
