When using the Omnibar (address bar) to search Google, the search term is repeated thrice. The search still works, but it is quite annoying, especially when you want to modify your original query. Any idea why, and how to fix it?

Example: When searching for "test" the following URL is produced:

https://www.google.com/search?q=test&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&q=test&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&channel=fflb&q=test&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&channel=rcs

For some reason, the default settings for the google search engine is incorrect. Go to Preferences, Manage Search Engines. Change the URL for the Google (Default) entry
