I'm trying to make my firefox setting to achieve the following behavior (both at the same time), but in vain:
- Show search result in the same tab (the one currently focused/shown) when I search from the search bar.
- Show search result in a new tab only when I search from the context menu, i. e. selecting some text in a page and then right clicking to choose "Search Google for [some text]".
Is there any way to do this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

hello, yes this should be possible. enter about:config into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named browser.search.context.loadInBackground. double-click it and change its value to true.
Thank you very much for the swift reply.
It seems like
would achieve what I wanted.
