This is working correctly on today's Linux build.

Firefox uses "Browse by name" (gfns=1), which means that Google decides for each query whether it's extremely likely that you want the first result, and either shows you a list of results or redirects you to the first result accordingly.

Try the queries "ford" and "articles for deletion" -- Google should redirect you for those queries.

See http://www.squarefree.com/2004/09/09/googles-browse-by-name-in-firefox/ and bug 323801 and bug 258838.
