Pocket Problems - URLS and Tabs

I am hoping that someone on these forums can help me, since it seems Pocket does not have its own help forum. Pocket has (suddenly, it seemed: today as far as I can tell) started appending "?utm_source=pocket_mylist" (for example "") to the end of every single link I open from my list now (I find this absolutely maddening), or in the case of YouTube links, in the middle of the URL (for example ""), and has stopped opening links in new tabs (again, this was fine until yesterday), meaning that if I was quite far down my article list, click a link but forget I now have to Ctrl+Click or Right-Click and then go back to the Pocket list, I have to scroll for a long time to get back to where I was.

This is, obviously, another one of those brain-dead examples of a product being "improved", whereby they made it materially worse. Unfortunately I do use Pocket a lot, so my question is if there is any way (something in about:config, or perhaps some add-on) to, in short, get it to cut this crap out (also known as "work")?

Thanks in advance.
