Firefox Google Searches

According to Google inc, it has been developed a functionality under Mozilla-based browsers that let you preload first result you have executed (Similar to I´m feeling lucky). So far, IE does not support it. It consists on including a link in the headers with 'prefetch value' as follows
 link rel="prefetch" href=""/

Curiously, not any search term will be included it.
'Yahoo', 'Nasa', 'StandFord' will but 'Football' will not. Does anyboy know why it behaves like that?.

Look at this to see the headers sent to the browser,

GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0
