User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0
Build ID: 20141013195847

Steps to reproduce:

I wanted to disable web search in address bar following this instructions:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-web-address-bar#w_turning-off-the-web-search-in-the-address-bar
(set "browser.fixup.alternate" to "false" in config)


Actual results:

It didn't have any effect. I also tried after restarting Firefox.
Typing something like "random string" in the address bar still takes me to the configured search provider.


Expected results:

I would have expected a "page not found" error message or something of the like.

It's better to use the support forum for questions like that.
