Can't go directly to URL in Android Firefox or Firefox Focus without first stopping at search engine.

Posted

Open Firefox or Firefox focus on Pixel XL Android 10. copy a URL from a link and paste it into the URL search bar where it says "Search or Enter Address". Paste the URL. Click the right-facing arrow on the keyboard - all entries first do a search on the URL and if the URL is not indexed in Google or whatever search engine is there, you are stuck at the search engine with no way to go directly to the URL. The phrase "search or enter address" means a choice - yet there is not choice. No matter what is entered into the URL search bar brings me to search and all I want to do is go directly to the URL.

Hi

So that I can look into this further here, do you have an example of a website address where this is happeing?

When I paste a full website address, I am taken straight to that page, not to a search engine result.
