Hello bestellungen,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar   about:config   and press Enter.
(ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled  and set its value to   false.

Do the same for these preferences :

browser.urlbar.suggest.searches
and
keyword.enabled

Then close and restart Firefox.

I hope this will work for you.

Actually,   the time stamp you see :   that's the time at Mozilla HQ   (California).
