Tested with Chrome, Vivaldi, Firefox. IE is used for web searches in every case.

It seems that changing the default web browser on Windows 10 is trickier than on previous versions. Have your tried the procedure described here for example?
Yes. Opening links from outside a browser opens whichever browser I have set as default. I don't think it's a case of not setting the default browser properly.
Confirmed. Win10's machinery for that matter is slightly different.
I will provide a fix but I might have to ask you to test it as I do not have a Win10 handy.
Sure, just let me know.
May I ask you to test this on a Windows 10?
Nope, issue persists unfortunately.
Second try? (same instructions)
Now it works! Findings:
-Vivaldi/Chrome: Searches open in a new window (instead of a new tab) when a browser instance is already running
-Firefox: Works as expected, opens new tab.
About your observations, the "new tab" behavior is unfortunately up to the browser. The only thing you can do is tweaking the new_window setting (WebSearch package). Edit: but it is, at best, a hint given to the browser.
Bingo! Changing that setting to "no" opens searches in tabs. Cheers.
Fixed in v2.2.
