Address bar treats code snippets as web addresses, making Googling them a frustrating experience

Recently switched to Vivaldi from Chrome, which I've generally been very happy with. The only thing that bugs me is that, when I paste code snippets into the address bar, it will sometimes treat it as as a web address, since I mostly write C# code that has a lot of dots in them. For instance, if I wanted to google Directory.EnumerateFiles, Vivaldi will treat it as a web address, and attempt to connect to it. This obviously fails, so instead it navigates to a "This site can’t be reached" page
Is there any way to fix this on my end, or should I post in the feature suggestion board instead?
Word1.Word2 is a valid domain.
If you want to search such word concatenations please use:
I wouldn't have to do this in Google Chrome, though. Is there a way for me to configure Vivaldi in such a way, so it simply does a Google search if the domain doesn't exist? If not by default, perhaps through an extension of some sort

The same behaviour is in Firefox, if that is worth anything. If you use the Search box instead of Address bar you can avoid using the nickname search, else in Address bar, as Gwen-Dragon said, prepending the nick of your chosen engine will fix that.

No. Can not be done in Vivaldi.
@ian-coog Thanks, guess I'll just have to develop a habit of doing so :)
@danieleverland So we can mark the thread as Resolved?
@gwen-dragon Sure :)
