Stop new tabs from opening

Inserita

Hi. I am using Firefox as my default browser on my pixel 3 xl and every time I go to perform a search, fire fox opens a new tab. Before I know it, I have a million tabs open. How do I stop this behavior? I want to only use one tab.

Hey there,

I'm having some trouble replicating this on my end. What search engine are you using? Could you also check that Firefox has been updated to the most recent version?

You can find your version by going to about:firefox in your address bar. The most recent version is 68.4.2

Hello. Thanks for responding. The version of Firefox I have is 68.4.2. On my phone, I have Firefox set as my default browser. In the Google app, I have it set to show search results externally from the app. So, when I click a link, it opens up Firefox. The issue that I am having is that every time I do this, the results open a new tab in the browser. I see no option in Firefox to disable this. The desired action is for Firefox to use the tab already open, provided there is one.

Hi

I do not think this is an issue with Firefox for Android, it is a consequence of the Google app looking to open a new browser every time that you do a search.
