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!
