Why does browser.search.intab not appear to function in 8.0 ?

In Release 3.5 browser.search.intab set to 'true' causes a new tab to be opened when you do a toolbar search. That doesn't appear to be the case with 8.0.

Extremely useful feature!!

That setting certainly does work as confirmed by ideato. My missing step was to restart Firefox to pick up the change. All is good now!

True: When performing a search from the Search Bar, open the results in a new tab.

False (default): Open search results in the current tab/window.
