how do i turn off smart address bar
I do not want the address bar to generate a google search. I want to navigate to the address I type in. Firefox just updated to 17.0.1 . Tonight I typed in the web address of Project Guttenberg and endup on a google search page. This is no acceptable. If i typed the address incorrectly an error message would be my preference

You can set the Location bar autocomplete feature to suggest "Nothing" in the Firefox Options window - Privacy panel. See this article for details:
- Address bar autocomplete in Firefox - Search your bookmarks, history and tabs
under "How can I control what results the location bar shows me?"

P.S. To turn off the Google search from the address bar, see this article:
- Search the web from the address bar under "Turning off the Internet Keyword search"
You can set the keyword.enabled pref to false on the about:config page.
Thanks to Corel and AliceWyman. That little tweak in the config settings was what I was seeking.
