I have an issue where Google Chrome pre-pends a symbol to my search query when I open a new chrome tab and type a search query in the url bar.
For example. I open a new tab and type in "news" and the query returns with this "%news". Then I have to manually delete the % sign and search again for the keyword. Also, if I type in "d3" it automatically converts that into a "?" symbol and searches google for "?". This issue only happens when I open a new tab and search in the address bar. If I actually go to google.com it does not happen.
