Managing search queries entered in the address bar

When I type in a single word search query in the address bar, it takes me to Comodo's search page with the following message (for search term "shirin")

Sorry, "shirin" does not exist or could not be found

longer search queries however redirect me to the default google search. I tried changing the "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" feature in about:config and also the changed the default search engine in same tab but it did not work. Despite un-installing Comodo quite some while ago the problem persists. I also tried resetting firefox from "troubleshooting information" - unsuccessfully.

It's a rather small issue but I find it very annoying. I've tried other fixes suggested by Firefox support page however nothing seems to be working.
