Firefox: open quick search result in a new tab
You want to use Google Search so you do this: open new tab, open Google Search, type search term and hit Enter. Could it be simplified?
The preferred way is this: jump to the quick search box with CTRL+K, type in your search term and hit Enter. The search result should be opened in a new tab.
Well, by default the result opens in the current window. Here is how to get it opened in a new tab:
about:config into the address bar, and then put the following into the filter box:
browser.search.openintab. Double-click the value to change it to true.”
