Question: macOS Sierra Search Problem

Hi everybody,

I've got a problem now that I upgrade my Macbook Pro 13" to macOS Sierra. When I type something on url section of safari or google chrome, or even if I fill something and then I get to the apps section, what I typed is already on de search field.

Do you know how to solve this?

The first screen shot shows launch pad in the search field if you enter mail - it will open mail application .

The second screen shot is of safari browser window - type mail in the url bar it will open top hits .

In safari preferences - check all of these boxes .
