When I click on the Firefox icon the app opens in which ever desktop it opened in last, not in the one the user (me that is) is currently in. Annoying but not critical.

This problem appeared after I upgraded to LM 20.3 and the latest FF in Flatpak so I have no idea if the problem is LM or FF or both.

First of all, let me thank you for making Firefox desktop aware in Linux Mint Cinnamon. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  !!! To have the tabs reload on the last desktop is wonderful. I used to have to re-arrange the tabs every reload. However, the performance behavior has changed since using Linux Mint 18. I just upgraded with a fresh install of Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon, firefox 92 64bit Firefox for Linux Mint -1.0 I have about 10 tabs across 3 desktops. When I exit and restart the session, the tabs get recreated and start loading. But the Linux GUI generally grinds to a halt. I thought that firefox was locked up. However recently I just let it sit and eventually apparently the tabs loaded and the machine was normal again. So something is a bit off in the priorities of threads? I can only guess...
