Firefox Search-box Results in New Tab

24 Dec

Firefox debuted and rocketed off to become a favorite browser among power users because of how customizable it is, and to this day it stays true to that reputation. Different users use their favorite differently, and I would assume there might be someone who would want a search result gotten from the search box to show in a new tab instead of current tab as it still might have page user is interested in. Thankfully there is a way in Firefox to achieve that.

  • You would have to go to the page “about:config”
  • Agree to the scary warning.
  • Search for “search”
  • Find the entry for “browser.search.openintab”
  • Double click on it to change the entry to,

 

Happy searching!

More Windows Phone May Have Received Denim Than Thought

21 Dec

Tonight I reset my Lumia 920 for the power button was not locking/unlocking the phone, apparently a common problem. After finishing the process, there was a notification saying welcome to denim and see more. That’s a little bit surprising seeing that the Lumia Denim update is not supposed to out for most Lumia devices, let alone for Lumia 920, and for my carrier specific version would be a moonshot. So I went into “extras+info” to check, it was indeed showing Lumia Denim. (Two screenshots merged here.)

Extras and Infos with Denim on 920

I remember that in a previous version of extras+info there was a bug that the app incorrectly reported Denim, but seeing that I had just checked for all updates, it had to be the latest version, and therefore the bug should not be there. I checked the OS version in the about section,

about from Lumia 920

I found that the OS version does not match the supposed OS version from the “Availability in Latin America” (my 920’s original carrier is Mexico’s Movistar) page, where Lumia 920 shows as Cyan,

But it matches the OS version number associated with Denim.

That makes me pretty confident that it is indeed now in Denim. I don’t exactly know how or when my phone could have updated to Denim. I did not see any prompt to download update, but there was the “gear” screen during reset.

So if you are desperate for Denim, you might try resetting your if it yields any result. For clarity’s sake, my Lumia 920 was receiving developer preview updates, and was on Cyan before reset.
