is there a way? When I type something in the search engine feature, is there a way that when I press enter to search, it comes up in a new tab, rather on the page I am using?

Yes, and I presume you mean both the search engine results, and the pages opened from the results.

Without making any changes you could always use Alt+Enter once you typed something into the search bar, or the location bar so that it would appear in a new tab. From the search results page you could always use "Ctrl+click" or "Ctrl+Shift+click" to open link n a new tab


The configuration entries of interest:

  • browser.search.openintab user set boolean true
  • browser.tabs.openinnewtab user set boolean true

Documentation

Google settings:

  • [x] Open search results in a new browser window.
By default Google opens links in its search results to the same new tab, but I believe that the configuration changes supplied also fix that because I no longer have to use the keyboard shortcuts to override.

  • [x] Open new windows in a new tab instead
