Search with ctrl-k no longer works when keyword.enabled = false

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

After the latest update I gave up on Firefox and switched to Chrome which was already installed on my iMac. I didn't like Chrome and wanted to go back for firefox however it won't open but it thinks it's open somewhere. I also tried putting it in the trash and download a fresh install but the result was saying it won't open now because it's already running. How is that possible? Firefox always has to be forced quit which I did but now I'm more frustrated and confused than before.

I LIKE MY VERSION OF FIREFOX.

I WAS (AGAIN) FORCED TO UPDATE BY FIREFOX.

THE DEFINITION OF MALWARE IS GETTING SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT OR ORDER.

HOW DO I STOP THIS FORCED NONSENSE?

OR DO I JUST STOP WASTING MY TIME ON THIS DECREASING WEB BROWSER???

BY THE TIME I DO ANYTHING YOU FORCED ME TO AN UPDATE!!! YOU SUCK.

Cannot sign into Citibank using Firefox. Can sign into Citibank routinely with Edge and Chrome. I can enter user ID and password on the Citibank page in Firefox, but then clicking on the "Sign On" button gets no response whatever. All other web sites I routinely visit using Firefox continue to work fine. I have shut down and re-started both Firefox, and then my laptop (Windows 10) - no help. Has worked fine virtually every day prior to today.
