wow, I've taken this feature for granted for so long, I never before
realized how odd it is that there is no easy to reach option to
configure/disable this feature. I guess that's what google gets for the
millions they spent on sponsoring Firefox....
To answer your question, enter "about:config" in your address bar to
enter the advanced firefox configuration settings. Search for "keyword"
(in the Filter box) and double click on "keyword.enabled" to change it
to false. That will disable the search from invalid URL's feature.
