Firefox search in a new tab

It can be a bit irritating when you type something in the search bar of firefox, hit enter and suddenly realise that you've actually forgotten to open it in a new tab and instead opened search results in the current pages you're reading.

Well take heart, as firefox has just the fix or you. Type "about:config" (without quotation mark) into the URL Address bar and after saying yes to the warning type in "browser search opening tab"(without quotation mark) into the fiter field. Double-click on the line that appears to turn it from "False" to "True" and restart Firefox. Next time you use the search bar, it will autamatically open your searc rsult in a new tab.
