How can I get Firefox to navigate to a URL instead of searching for it?

If I manually type a URL into the navigation bar, by default Firefox will issue a search request to Google for the URL.

The workaround is to open another tab and manually write the URL again, this time manually adding 'http://'.

Ideally I want my browser to actually go to the URL that I supply to it.
