Pasting words into searchbar will sometimes attempt loading a website instead

Sometimes but not rarely when I copy/paste a word into the search bar, I will be directed to a website or sometimes the result shows as a missing/unknown website error as if I typed in a link instead.

There is a keyboard shortcut to automatically add www. and .com to the address bar and attempt to go to that site; you must accidentally be hitting that shortcut - I believe it is Ctrl-Enter. If you are using the keyboard, make sure you release the modifier key(s) before pressing Enter.

I have an alternative theory, but I may be wrong:
Ctrl+Shift+Vas default keyboard command to call up a web page being in the clipboard comfortably immediately.
If you use this key combination sometimes inadvertently instead of just
CTRL+V, depending on what is currently in the clipboard, this phenomenon could possibly be triggered.
To check, change or delete that keyboard shortcut, open Opera's preferences and search for Paste and go.
