User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008041506 Minefield/3.0pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008041506 Minefield/3.0pre

I have removed search from my toolbars.
I have switched browser.search.openintab to be true.

If I hit CTRL-K, a search page (my default search provider) opens in the current tab.

It should open in a separate tab when browser.search.openintab is true.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove search from all toolbars
2. Insure that browser.search.openintab is true
3. Press CTRL-K
Actual Results:  
Search page opens in current tab.

Expected Results:  
Search page should open in a new tab.

Two things:
1) This happens on a Mac
2) This behavior is particularly problematic if you're used to using Command-K to add hyperlinks to content in content management systems like Wordpress. I post content in many places, and when I use Command-K on a site that doesn't have that function, Firefox loads the search page causing loss of data from the form I was filling out.
