Can't search single words with address bar
When I try to search 2 or more words directly from the address bar, it will show Google Search results, wich is what I want. But when I try to search a single-word query directly from the address bar, Firefox thinks it's a URL and doesn't search it on Google.
Example: when I press enter after typing 1 2 3 it will search on Google, but when typing 1 it will try to connect to a website wich address is "1"
With numbers it will show a Firefox "Unable to Connect" error and when trying to search a single word with letters it will go to OpenDNS Guide (I'm using OpenDNS).
I have already tried to change keyword.URL, to disable browser.fixup.alternate.enabled, to reset search engines, but it hasn't worked. It only happens in Firefox. When doing the same in Chrome, Safari and Opera it will search on Google.

You can use a (one letter) keyword search to ensure that Firefox does a search and doesn't threat the word as an URL.
You can either do that for existing search engines via the Manage Search Engines window or create a keyword bookmark.
