Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Yes, there is a bug on file for that. Firefox opens a new tab if you press the Enter key to submit the search from the Search Bar, but not if you click the button.

Thank you very much. I didn't notice there's another bug reporting system.

I think I don't have anything to add to that thread but I'll use there when it's clear that it's more a bug report rather than support question.

I hope they could fix the bug in near future.
