The 'search' context item in Firefox currently moves focus to the new tab with search results. This wasn't always the case; is there any way to revert to the old behavior?

I'm currently using Nightly build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130508 Firefox/23.0 ID:20130508031113 CSet: b980d32c366f

Hm, focussing the tab is still the default behaviour on Aurora for Mac. Anyway, you can change it:

  1. Enter about:config in your URL bar
  2. Click OK on the warning (if presented)
  3. Search for browser.search.context.loadInBackground
  4. Double-click to toggle between true and false (true is the behaviour that you want)
