30.0.2.0 undocumented change in the way the omnibox works.

Previously it would go straight to the keyword search without having to click that extra button.
I have set up lots of keyword searches and this is a major annoyance.

I checked and there is nothing obvious on the settings page to turn that feature off.
Is there perhaps a flag I could set?

Fiddled with it and found it.

chrome://flags/

Search for "Omnibox suggestion button row" and disable it.

Maybe someone else can benefit. 8-)

Thank you so much for this. You just made my life easier.
I also noticed that keyword feature missing, but did not think to look for it in Flags.
I too have lots of keywords. Long live keywords.

Wonder if you might look at my Post in Usage Questions:

In version 32 what I did is now the default.

I'm guessing this feature was something inherited from Chrome, but hardly anybody liked it.
