Bug Description

Binary package hint: deskbar-applet

I typed a random search string into the deskbar applet and selected one of the web searches. The search results appeared as a new tab in one of my existing firefox windows.

This is confusing. Other Gnome tools which open web pages open them in new firefox windows, which ensures that the content appears where the user can see it (on top, on the current workspace) and that the user can close it normally and so on. The deskbar applet search should do the same.

"I can't confirm this bug. In deskbar 2.19.90.1 web searches obey the
preference set in the Preferred Applications control panel."

Does that works for you?
