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.

I just checked this and it works in the latest Firefox with keyword.enabled false.
Ctrl+K does a search, crl+L does a URL.
Is it working for you now?
