F6 starts search instead of default address bar behaviour?

All of a sudden when I press F6, it starts a Google search (see image) instead of just focusing the address bar. This is rather annoying because I use F6 all the time to go to a different page (e.g. type "mail" and then follow the autocomplete to mail.google.com) and that doesn't work if it wants search google for mail instead.

How do I revert this to its normal behaviour?

I discovered the cause... apparently my keyboard had changed from F-keys to function key default. So I was sending "search" commands instead of F6. Switching back to F-keys default fixed this issue.
