Ctrl-E shortcut automatically opens Google search instead of simply highlighting the address bar.

Hi, after a recent update to Firefox, Ctrl-E now automatically tries to search from Google instead of simply highlighting the address bar. This is really annoying as every time I want to quickly open another site in a tab, I have to press Ctrl-E, then backspace, and then start typing the address. Is there any way to revert this behavior to how it worked before Enclosed image shows the Google search bar as it opens on pressing Ctrl-E. This is how it used to look when I pressed the shortcut.
