Prioritize URLs on searches with the search bar

When I search for some terms in Firefox, the suggestions are firstly presented instead of the URLs. In Chrome, this is the other way around: URLs are firstly presented.

I took two screenshots that I attached to this message to illustrate my point.

I really like Firefox and have been a long time user and I would really like to fix that. I didn't find a way so far in about:config.

Any help? :)

Hi, you may get what you want by doing this : Copy/Paste about:preferences#search into the Address Bar and Enter

Under Default Search Engine Put a tick in the box, add another tick , take away one till find right combination. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-suggestions-firefox

It is what it is as Firefox is not Google.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
