Firefox think my search query is an address, auto-complete it into "www.[input]".
I'm considering comeback to Firefox.
As a long time chrome user, I've gotten used to use address bar as search bar
However, In firefox this cannot be always successful, if I type in 15+15,
My intention is to search this in google and therefore get the calculation result.
But instead Firefox add www. prefix in the front, "fix" my result.
Also, 15/3 was interpreted as 0.0.0.15, this doesn't even make sense, what kind of
ppl type their IP this way? Not me at least.
I've tried to disable autofix in the about:config, no luck.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply.
As I am an old user of chrome, I sort of expect Firefox to be able to
"just work": press F6, enter something and browser should guess
correctly whether it is an search query or an actual address.
In fact, I'm thinking what I'm experiencing is more of a bug than
a feature? 15+15 generally should not interpret as an address,
even there is such an website: www.15+15.com. Firefox should add
both prefix and a postfix such as .com to it?
