Search results do not open in new tabs

Inserita

I am using ver 67.0.4 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Professional. I have been able to open new search results in separate tabs. I do not want them opening in the same tab. It used to be that I could toggle browser.search.openintab to True and it would work. No luck now. It keeps opening in the same tab. :-( Open links in tabs instead of new windows is checked.

It seems with every new version something annoying happens and I am caught wasting time to fix this. How can I fix this? TIA.

Hello Fire Marshal Bil,

As I sometimes want a search result to open in the same tab, I had the value of that preference set to "false" - always open a search result (or any link) by holding the Ctrl key and then click on the link.

To see what is going on, I just changed the value of that pref to "true", and you're right : the links still open in the same tab.

Would you (for now) open them holding the Ctrl key and then press the link, till somebody comes up with an explanation (and solution) ?

Hello McCoy,

I really didn't want to use the CTRL key in any event. However, wonder of wonders!!! Today, it is working flawlessly opening up new tabs as if it was going out of style! I think I am going create an image of the machine, in case this happens again. The lengths I will go to to preserve this feature shows how much I hate it when it opens in the same tab.

Thank you for your quick response.

I have tried to do what you guys suggest. When i access the openintab it is set to true. But when i open either DuckDuckDo or Google this option is off in their settings. I set it to on and OK. But every time i close and restart the search engines this tab setting has been cancelled. This has only been happening since the last update.
