Links clicked from homepage open too many new tabs

When I click on any link from the Firefox homepage, the link opens in a new tab. For example, if I:

  • Tap the address bar from an existing tab to get the homepage
  • Tap the Wikipedia link from the "top sites" section of the homepage

Then the Wikipedia page will open in an additional tab. I want it to open in the same tab, because my Firefox session gets cluttered with many tabs that were all opened this same way.

Is it possible to avoid opening new tabs when following links from the homepage (after reaching the homepage from tapping the address bar as described)?

I've also noticed that opening bookmarks opens them in new tabs. I don't want that either. I want bookmarks to open in the current tab.

Probably best if you include that in the same issue.
