Location bar search goes to my internet service provider instead of search engine selected in search bar; why?

Using Firefox 26.0 for openSUSE 12.3

I have disabled keyword search from the location/address bar, because instead of search results from the source selected in the search bar (google), my string entry got sent to my internet service provider, some kind of dead-end, unproductive "web search" page with no results.

I had typed in "ezsniper" to the location bar. After disabling the keyword search in about:config, my string entry took me to, which is better than the dead-end page
