Control+E adds a ? thus searching any domains I enter, how do I stop this?

For ages now I've used Firefox and to save time as i swap pages a lot doing hobbiest web development and such, I use ctrl+e. Recently, like tonight recently whenever I do control+e it's started putting ? before it. Whenever this happens any domain I enter is searched. It may be a minor thing but it seriously annoys me that this started happening. It's one of the main things I hate about MS Edge! Is there any way to stop/fix this so I can just go back to my normal lifestyle? Thanks in advance - Steve

hi, Ctrl + E is the shortcut to perform a search/focus the serach bar. if you just want to focus the address bar F6, Alt + D and Ctrl + L would be the official shortcuts for that.
