Shift+Enter and Shift+Ctrl+Enter navigation stopped working

Firefox updated itself to version 64, and now instead of shift+enter or ctrl+shift+enter causing it to navigate to the address bar contents surrounded with www. and either .net or .org, both combinations open a new window which then navigates to whatever was already there with nothing added on. That is - if I put "test" into the address bar and hit shift+enter, I no longer navigate to "www.test.net," but instead get a new additional FF window that immediately searches my search provider for "test." Was this functionality broken in this version, or is there just some new option I need to change to get that behavior back?

Hi. I'm not sure when it happened, because I usually leave Firefox update itself automatically.

I like to use ctrl+enter to complete .com URL, shift+enter to complete .net URL, and ctrl+shift+enter to complete .org URL, and add alt key to these hotkeys to open it on separate window. Only ctrl+enter seem to work and shift+enter was replaced to searching on default search engine on separate window. But I do it by doing alt+enter.

What are the new hotkeys and how do I change them back?

How can I disable the shift-enter function that opens whatever I've typed into the address bar in a new window?

Recently I've found that hitting "enter" after typing something into the address bar in Firefox causes it (search results, whatever) to open in a new window. I'm a fast typist but also a bit sloppy, and what's happening is that I'm hitting enter while my finger is still on the "shift" key. It's incredibly frustrating, and also seems to be a relatively new development: I've been using Firefox for years and don't recall ever encountering this until very recently. I will never, ever actually want to use this particular shortcut in my life, EVER, so what can I do to disable it?

I also recently had to install an add-on to disable the detach-and-tear option for tabs, which is something else (accidentally moving tabs to new windows when clicking on them) that only became a problem for me very recently. That has apparently been a problem for other people for quite some time, though, so maybe I had a long-ago-installed extension that prevented it, that was disabled post-FF56? Whatever the case, Firefox performance has dramatically improved with the new version, but frustrations like these continue to crop up.
