Firefox: Load context menu search tab in background

📅 2012-Jun-26 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ firefox, search ⬩ 📚 Archive


In recent versions of Firefox, if you select any text, right-click and choose Search Google (or any search engine), the new tab with these results is opened in the foreground.


This default behaviour can be changed to load the tab in the background by setting to true in about:config

Tried with: Firefox 13.0.1 on Windows 7 64-bit
