How to make [address bar search/new-URL] + [alt-return] open new tab in BACKGROUND?
When I alt-click, I always want a new tab to appear, but in the background—never forcing me to navigate away from my current window. (I'm a Mac user, and use the Command key as my alt.) I've successfully toggled settings in about:config to make this happen in 90% of cases. But...
When I type into the address bar and hit alt-return, Firefox always forces the new tab into the foreground (whether a search result or a typed URL). How do I change this setting to background?

I don't think Firefox has a preference for that scenario (you probably are familiar with the preferences for regular links, popup links diverted to a tab, bookmarks, and the optional classic short search bar).
Mozilla has a new "Ideas" site at https://connect.mozilla.org/. I think if you have time, it would be a good idea to post there to get into the current feedback stream. (Post under the "Ideas" section rather than the "Discussion" section.)
