Default Mozilla Firefox Apostrophe Hazard


I'm having problem typing my mails with Firefox: when I open a new window, and I write something, I cannot use the " ' " sign nor copy or paste anything. the " ' " sign opens a "Quick Search" bar on the bottom of the window.

I know that " ' " is a shortcut to the quick search, but I desactivated all I could to avoid it, and this bug still remains.

The only solution I found to make Firefox let me type " ' " in my text without opening this annoying bar, is to switch app and to come back on Firefox windows. And then - miracle - it works again.

Is this bug fixed now ? I already looked over the Internet, but the endless threads without solutions I found did not help me much...

Could someone help please ?
