How to stop Ebay from automatically searching its site while I'm typing in the search bar?

I find this very distracting and only occasionally useful. Is there a way of stopping all sites from searching while I type? Ebay used to have an option to turn this off but no longer as they continue to strip away the user's control on their deteriorating website, year by year. I was hoping I could block it in the browser, maybe with an extension if I can't do it in About:Config.
