Firefox shares link from previous tab

When I select the share icon, to share something to FB Messenger, for example, when it composes the message, it selects the previous tab I was on, not the one I was actively looking at. Not only that, but doing a long press on the address bar to just copy the URL directly actually suddenly jumps to also being the url from the previous tab. Refreshing the page seems to fix it, but more than once I've accidentally shared something I didn't intend by clicking through too fast. This started with the most recent update a few months ago, I never had this problem before. Not really sure what I can do about this.
