Task Opened from Search Should Open in the Foreground, Not Replace Current Page

One thing that changed recently that is causing some issues, is that when you are in a report, and you search for a task in the search bar, when you click on it, you are taken to a separate full page for that task.  But you are taken out of your report. 

What used to happen, was that the task you open from search would be brought to the foreground, but the report would remain in the background. 

This was better, because then the report is still there and I don't have to re-navigate to reports to open it again. 

It would be awesome if you could either a) open searched-for tasks in the foreground again, leaving the report in the background untouched. Or b) default to opening the searched-for task in a new tab.

This feature would help us too! It would significantly improves the overview :)

I totally see what you guys mean and yes, this has changed with the new Search. What you can do instead is click the 'back' button at the top of the search results window, which will bring you straight back to what you were looking at before. 
 
Take a look at this GIF and let me know what you think of this way of navigating back to the report. Thanks 👍

Yes, i saw that back button [BTW, its the same as using back button from the browser-self], i still agree that

Opening in in the Foreground, is more convinced and efficient, so you shouldn't forget where u left off..

What's interesting; that if u'll hit on the searched task very slight, it'll still come up in foreground..
