I have Firefox version 92.0 on my laptop, using Windows 10. I'm trying to disable search from address bar. I have changed the value of keyword.enabled from true to false as suggested, but when I type anything into my Google search engine it still jumps up to the address bar. Any other suggestions?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi, you can set keyword.enabled back to its normal value. There is a different setting to prevent the search box in the built-in Firefox Home / new tab page sending your cursor to the address bar when you start typing in that search box. It takes a bit of work to find it because of the unusual name:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false

Success?
