2013b21 - address bar is search bar

Post by Kali » Tue Mar 12, 2013 2:48 pm

The address bar turns out to be an extra search bar. If the url doesn't exist it automatically comes up in a Google search page.

Thanks, but that solution is the opposite of what I want.
I don't have the Avant Error Page enabled and I do not want Google to search for what I typed into the address bar.

If it's a Search Engine shortcut I want the shortcut to be resolved and if it's a wrong url I want the browser engine error page to show up.

I agree with you on this. The behavior you describe in your second sentence (above) should be the default behavior.

It's a feature, not a bug.

It may not be a bug, but it's an annoyance if you can't disable it without enabling the Avant Error Page.
