Is there a setting to avoid firefox swapping to new tabs, when ctrl-clicking search results in address bar?

Sometimes I want to search on multiple things through the address bar, but usually I search on google instead because every time I ctrl-click to open the searches, firefox automatically switches to that tab which means I have to swap back to the other tab, every time I open a new tab through the address bar.

It's only a problem in the search bar. Bookmarks and links on webpages open in new tabs, without swapping to those tabs.
