I'm using Firefox across both desktop and mobile devices, and one feature I'm using heavily, is to set up keywords for searches with website-specific search bars. For example, entering "w hedgehog" in my setup is the same as going to Wikipedia, and entering "hedgehog" in its search bar. Here's a better description: Search keywords However, since the update to Firefox 79 on my android phone, this is no longer working at all.

Is this an oversight, planned to be added back in later, or, which I don't hope, "a feature that not enough people were using, so we axed it"?

I also used this feature heavily, and now is gone, are we overlooking something?
