    It is not just that, but when you connect a bluetooth keyboard you will end up in the same situation. Last night, I figured out a workaround:

    In the Play Store, find a different keyboard (it doesn't really matter which one, just get a different one). Go to the settings, give the keyboard access, and then set it as your default keyboard. Now, when you are in something like Google search, if you hit the enter key the floating keyboard will pop up and you can navigate to the "Go/Return" button on there.

    It's imperfect, but it works.

    I have a RII mini bluetooth keyboard I use with my Nvidia Shields and 4K F*restick unfortunately I can't pair any other bluetooth remote or keyboard to it. Only other bluetooth device I've been able to pair to my Tivo is Bluetooth Headset

    Excellent suggestion. Totally works. Just remember after you install the new keyboard to setting -> device preferences -> keyboard and change from gboard to the new keyboard as default. Thanks.
