Clicking on the "Search" button while holding down the Control key does not open
the search results on a new tab as it is expected, since the "Go" button
performs this way when holding down Control and clicking on the "Go" button or
pressing the Enter key.

The same result is expected when you drag and drop an URL or some text into the
"Go" and "Search" buttons; it never opens a new tab, it always uses the current
one even if you have the Control key down, but it should (oh, well, at least, it
would be great).

By the way, the Web Search feature (in the popup menu) always opens on a new
window, here should the user be able to open the search results on new tabs.
