How can I reproduce your problem? Note that "Paste & Search" in the search box works as expected for me.

"Paste & go" is address field right mouse button option. You can type in address bar:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth
then put in clipboard "Pluto" (without quotes), select "Earth" in addres bar, click rigth mouse button and choose "Paste & go". You will see in address bar
Pluto
and error in browser window instead of next
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pluto
"Paste" must do what it MEANS! "Paste & go" must be just a fusion of 2 commands "Paste" and "Go".

Well, a vanilla Firefox has the same behavior. I wonder why Mozilla implemented the feature that way.
