I would like to know how to force Firefox search box results to open in a new tab?

Results from any entry into the Firefox search box currently return in the tab that's open, regardless the location.

Is there a way to force "open in a new tab" without having to open a blank tab to keep the results from changing the current tab to the search resource location?

For the Google search bar on the Navigation toolbar you can set the pref browser.search.openintab to true on the about:config page.
