I don't want to use the locbar for search, and in Options I've unchecked "Use the address bar for search and navigation." Nevertheless if I misspell a url or the url can't be found, the locbar will convert to a search bar for pages that supposedly I might want. How can I stop that behavior?

Set keyword.enabled to false on the about:config page.

Thanks, dickvl--very helpful as usual. It does seem strange that this should be necessary in view of my Options preference.
