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 "https://daringfireball.net/?utm_source=pocket_mylist") 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 "https://www.youtube.com/watch?utm_source=pocket_mylist&v=S_b0ndn5oIg"), 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.
