Search in Firefox for android


Why is it so hard to do simple searches in ff for android? Sometimes when I type into the bar the google suggestion pops up below, many times however it does not. So I have to actually go to google and do a search. I have been using ff since beta, but this is frustrating to no end. It may just be time to switch to chrome, with which I can type anything into the bar, hit go and get relevant results. Mydevice is a galaxy s3.

You don't have to wait for google's suggestions, just press enter and it will load the google search for you.

if only that were true. If I hit "go" not enter on android, I get a 404. If I type in an actual url this obviously isn't a problem.
