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 https://i.imgur.com/nxavBpC.png Enclosed image shows the Google search bar as it opens on pressing Ctrl-E. https://i.imgur.com/rehzhj9.png This is how it used to look when I pressed the shortcut.
