Turn off search in address bar

more options

With FF 89 on MacOS the behaviours of the new tab page and address bar have changed. Previously I turned off search in the address bar preferring to do searches on the DuckDuckGo site which I set as my new tab page. Now, upon typing into the DDG search control focus immediately shifts to the new address/search bar. I want the old behaviour because I prefer to keep these functions separate. How do I do this?

Thanks in advance.
