Links opened from start-page opens in a new tab

Using Firefox mobile 83.1

Any link opened from the start-page opens in a new tab. Once opened there is no back button in the browser to return to the start-page. What is strange is that the device back/return button works and returns you to the start page but there again any link opened goes to a new tab. The back button should ideally return to the start-page within the same tab, that is what the old firefox would do and what all other mobile browsers still do.

Another thing I feel pretty weird is that any link copied comes up as "fill link from clipboard". That is useful but the option stays even if the link is opened and even if firefox is closed. Basically as long as it stays in clipboard it keeps showing up.

Is these two behaviors expected in the new firefox. Let me know your opinions.
