    OK,
    I dont like the google instant search function :p
    &
    Despite TMP and "open all links in new tab" enabled; many google search links are opening in same tab.
    Different default "search options/preferences" if searching from address bar or from google page :p
    This is causing my personal CPU to overheat.

    What is the way to stop these irritating problems ?
    I can enable google cookies per session...reluctantly..but am in the habit of cleaning all cookies on FF shut down.
    Dont really want to enable ALL google cookies, is there some single least invasive setting to stop these irritating defaults.
    THX.

    Ya, might come to that.
    I just got into the routine of setting google.com.au as home page.
    across all images and snapshots for simplicity.
    I usually come to the box 'with something specific on my mind' :)

    I imagine many here have noticed at the very least the annoying instant search.
    In fact dont want to enable any google cookies.
    :eek:
    Even though it's prolly too late for me (and you).
    :shifty:

    I configure NoScript to block based on full domain, then I block www.google.com

    From TMP forums:
    TMP plans to address this with next build.

    Otherwise:
    MrK & Sadeghi; Ta, gotit.
    To make something work..need to remove something not add something.
