Stop Firefox from assuming search terms are websites

Is there a way to stop Firefox from assuming that anything with a "." in it, without spaces, is a website? If I search for "string.replace" in the search bar, it attempts to take me to http://www.string.replace/ - instead of searching for "string.replace" on my default search engine.

I've previously had problems with one-word searches taking me to http://www.{one-word}.com

in other words, thinking that by "one-word" I meant "one-word.com", instead of a search for "one-word". I've just instinctively started adding spaces after those; but I actually can't seem to replicate this behaviour anymore. Either it's already been fixed, or I'm not entirely sure under what conditions it happens. Is there a setting to more aggressively go for searches? And ideally only assume something that's an actual toplevel domain, should count as a URL indicator?

Firefox used to facilitate an excellent addin called Password Exporter. It has since been deemed Legacy and is no longer supported... While Firefox's embedded password manager has the capability to import passwords from other browser platforms, there is no provision to import my 270 passwords kept in an xml file created by Password Exporter. After a fresh install of Windows 10, I now have to open the password xml file with "notebook" and search for the required password...

One would think such an advanced program as Firefox there would be provisions afforded users to import and export passwords from and to a data file, preferably an xml file. No one saves 270 passwords on stickup notes. Everyone removes and reinstall Firefox...

Mozilla.... Please address this problem... The multitudes will be grateful.... How long could it take your code writers to install this feature in your next upgrade???
