I never want to open local files from the address bar

When I try to google some absolute file path (e.g. /etc/fstab) in the address bar, instead of googling, it just opens the file from my local filesystem (as file:///etc/fstab)

I know that I can use search keywords or quote file paths, but even so, I think that users hardly ever use browsers to open local files by absolute url. So this UX totally disappoints me because I need to keep this in my mind every time I want to google file or I lose my mental concentration and then I need to change the focus from solving my issue here and now to fixing this misbehavior

Can I somehow fix this behavior with about:config?
