Firefox changes behaviour between search and address in bar depending on how fast you are


(Firefox :: Address Bar, defect, P5)

(Reporter: javierdo1, Unassigned)



User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:61.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/61.0
Build ID: 20180705213349

Steps to reproduce:

I opened a new tab, pasted one word to address-search bar, and press enter

Actual results:

Depending on how fast I press enter, I get a word search or a `` lookup (which I obviously don't want).

This doesn't happen when there is more than one word separated by an space (which obviously doesn't qualify as a domain)

Expected results:

I should always get a search, speed of pressing enter should not influence the behaviour

We now have three of these similar bugs (startup or new tab/window, using the urlbar) that could use some investigating (see the See Also bugs).
