Video: Improved Firefox Search Behavior

Here you can see the autosearch function working nicely. If you type something in the searchbar then change the seach-engine, the seach is executed automatically.

Searches from the urlbar are also fixed. Normally if you search an alphanumeric string that is fewer than 16 characters from the Firefox urlbar, Firefox will pause before searching.

Both solutions are Javascript so it should be possible to convert them to a single Bootstrap extension.
