In the "Google Search Setting", if select "Do not use Google Instant", then the selected search result of Google Search will be displayed in a new window, but if "Use Google Instant", the selected result will replace Google Search window. This problem does not exist when using Chrome Browser.

What is your setting for "open new windows in a tab instead" under the Tabs tab in Tools -> Options?

Hi, fmdeveloper, thank you for your reply! The setting is "on"(ticked) for "open new windows in a tab instead".

That does what it says - even if Google tells the browser to open the page in a new window, you have told Firefox to ignore that and open it in a new tab. Uncheck the box and you should get the result you want.
