In 2014, Mozilla was proposed to completely modify the operation of Firefox. Some changes we have already seen, even quite rightly. However, must pay attention to one of the sections that have been less modified: the area of search. We anticipate that there will be great changes that are currently being tested and should go into production in the release of Firefox 43.
We should note that the interface was slightly modified and new icons, but the change that is coming is a bit more flashy. Almost all the news will focus on action that will make the browser when the right mouse button is pressed in the search bar. In this way, you will open two new options: search in a new tab and select the default search engine.
On the other hand, there will also be a new preference: browser.search.openintab. In the event that its value is positive, all searches will be made in new tabs. Remember that Firefox 43 will be multiple options when selecting the default search engine. The number of clicks will be significantly reduced.
It is true that the modifications will be carried out are few, although we recommend that you be attentive. The Mozilla Foundation is to put batteries in improving its web browser, so it is more likely they are received news in the coming weeks, especially on security.
Remember that you can install the beta versions of Firefox. They are not as stable or as secure as production versions, but will help you to know all the innovations that will be implemented.
