One thing that has annoyed me about Firefox 2 is search results (entered in the search box) open in current tab. With the Tabbrowser Preferences Extension in Firefox 1.5, I had it setup so the search results would open in a new tab. After some hunting in mozillaZine (Firefox 2.0 RC2 and Google) I found this result can be achieved in Firefox 2, with a simple about:config entry change:
- Access about:config via the extension button or by opening a new tab and typing about:config in the address bar
- Copy and paste into the filter field browser.search.openintab
- Double click the entry to that the value changes to true
- Close the tab or the about:config window.
