When I do a search, I want a new tab to open when I click on a choice from the search.... It used to do this.......

When my pc crashed last week, I had to reinstall Firefox and now when I click on a choice, it opens in the same tab. This makes it difficult to compare information in different choices.... I want to search and be able to click on a choice, have it open in a new tab, and be able to go back to my 'search' to look at other options.....

I have tried to find a remedy but have been unsuccessful.... Please help!

The Google website has a choice on its settings page top open results in a new tab.

The Firefox search bar on the Navigation Toolbar has a (hidden) setting that you can access and modify on the about:config page.

  • = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

If you prefer a different search provider, most of them probably have a similar setting. For example:

Bing: => Results section

DuckDuckGo: => New window setting => Results Appearance section

Yahoo: => Open search results setting

This might be saved in your account, or it might only be saved in a cookies, so if the settings keeps getting lost, consider whether you might be clearing cookies or using private windows.
