opening links in the window on the current virtual desktop

I use multiple virtual desktops (let's call them A, B, C, and D) on Windows 10, and have a separate Firefox window running in each.

When I use the browser on, say, desktop D, then switch to desktop A and click a link from another application, Firefox moves me back to desktop D and opens the link in a tab back there. If I had opened a blank tab in the browser on desktop A first, the link would have opened in that window.

How can I get Firefox to open links in the browser window that is on the current desktop, instead of in the most recently used window? Chrome works this way, so I don't think it's a fundamental limit of Windows virtual desktops.

To clarify the current flow:

  1. use Firefox on desktop D
  2. switch to desktop A
  3. click in a link in, say, Outlook
  4. view switches back to desktop D and page opens there (regardless of whether there's a Firefox window on desktop A)

How it should work:

  1. use Firefox on desktop D
  2. switch to desktop A
  3. click in a link in, say, Outlook
  4. if there's an instance of Firefox running in desktop A, open the link there; if not, switch to most recently used instance
