how to open command line search results in new tab of existing instance of firefox

Posted

when I search from the command line using "firefox --search, whether using -new-tab or not, the search results open in a new window instead of a new tab in the existing instance of firefox. Can the search results be forced to open in a new tab in the existing instance? I am using the terminal in ubuntu 18.04 and firefox quantum(64).

After the first run, it opens a new window and the following searches correspond to the options
