Searching using address bar doesn't work

  • It started not so long ago, I'm using the latest build of Opera. When I try to search for something using the address bar - it doesn't work and redirects me to the home screen (where I have my all thumbnails). It makes me write the phrase I wanted to search once again (the second time it works without problems and redirects me to google site with results). It's extremely annoying because it happens about half the time I try to google something. Any ideas how to fix it? Because it's so annoying that if it persists I think I'll have to change the browser for good.

  • @aquilaspqr-0 Any difference if you change the default search engine? Already disabled extensions, reset settings? What about creating a new profile directory?
