Search Results In A New Tab

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:

  1. Access about:config via the extension button or by opening a new tab and typing about:config in the address bar
  2. Copy and paste into the filter field
  3. Double click the entry to that the value changes to true
  4. Close the tab or the about:config window.
