'site:' is about the only useful one; I thought there would be a 'lang:' but nope.

How can I disable searching and domain guessing from the Firefox Address Bar, while keeping other features? - Super User | https://superuser.com/
The settings mentioned in the accepted answer will prevent, for example, 'localhost' from redirecting to 'localhost.com', but this still doesn't stop Firefox from trying to visit a non-existent web site if your search term has a period in it. So a search like "vcruntime140.dll" will still assume that ".dll" is a TLD.

However, I blindly discovered that putting a "?" at the beginning of the query is enough to turn of hostname detection, and pressing Ctrl+K will do that, and focus the Awesome Bar for you.

Go to about:config and set the following preferences to false:

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled

True (default): Try to fix up http://foo to http://(prefix)foo(suffix)
False: Do not second-guess the user

Foursquare’s Dennis Crowley Can’t Stop Believing — Backchannel — Medium
People ask me about the privacy things all the time. I don’t want people to think that we’re being creepy — I want to expose this, so I can say if you carry this thing in your pocket, you get smarter. We understand where you’ve been, but we don’t share it with anyone.

Wild Card Search in Address Book - Microsoft Community [http://answers.microsoft.com/]
Hi everyone whom might concerned,
Actually I had the same purpose with "DavidJarman". And I dissapointed to know that things like this were virtual blackholes.
For me, I do this initiative: DSQUERY.EXE USER -NAME *keyword* | DSGET.EXE USER -EMAIL -L | FIND
