Disable (auto)search from addressbar

  • Is there a way to disable (auto)search from the adress bar?

    What is my problem:
    When i type local address to the adress bar (read: anything which does not end with dot and valid national top order domain like .com, .biz etc. or full IP adress) - opera starts searching for it using default search engine. Same happens when you make mistake in the adress.

    What i want to happen:
    When i type anything into the address bar - i want Opera to try to reach the address. If it fails - I want it to tell me - "cant reach" and thats it.

    I want the search happen ONLY when i specifically order Opera to do it - by using the defined shortcut (fx. "G") at the beginning.

    Is this possible?
