How do I disable the Internal Aliases (@google, @amazon, @bing etc.) functionality in the address bar?

I've disabled all the extra search garbage from my address bar, so it acts as an address bar, a simple plain jane address bar, almost. However, I find that there are internal aliases for search engines still usable in the address bar with the @keyword.

How do I disable all of them and have just an address bar that acts as an address bar?

Extra credit question: Why am I forced to have search in my address bar or as a extra bar in the standard settings? What if I don't ever want to have a search box or ever use my address bar to search?

FYI I found this because my cursor jumps from search box in new tab to address bar when in private browsing mode with @searchenginenamehere.
