By default when you type a keyword into the Location Bar Firefox takes you to the top Google result for that search. However, by modifying the about:config entry keyword.URL you can change this behaviour.

Location Bar keyword URLs

Service keyword.URL
Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" (default) http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=
Google "Browse by Name" (Automatically takes you to sites with a clear match, else performs a Google search) http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=
Google Search (Google search results page) http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=
