I just checked this. As I thought, if you search in the
address bar, control l, you will hear suggestions spoken.
If you use control k, a search field for searching and
nothing else, you will not hear suggestions spoken.
Control k, type the search and press enter. The results
page will come up. it will be the results page from your
default search engine. I believe in Firefox, its Google,
but I’m not sure.
i disabled various options
including search suggestions to avoid such problems.
