To have a web browser automatically go to a website based on a word typed in the URL BAR is a security nightmare. There is no way to tell what asinine site you will end up on if you miss spell a word. I DO NOT WANT the URL bar to SEARCH FOR ANY D*MNED THING. I want -- as I had before FF43, a search bar on one line and a URL bar on a different line and I want them to function separately as URL and Search. NOT COMBINED. I've added browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete and set it false. No change. I' ve set keyword.enabled to false -- no change.

Hi whawn1, To Disable search in URL bar: Go to about:config Type in the search bar keyword.enabled And set its value to false Do the same with browser.fixup.alternate.enabled and browser.urlbar.suggest.searches
