How to prevent Firefox from opening links in a non-default container

I'm using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension and it's great. I have a number of containers manually created and use them according to my personal preference. No sites are associated with containers via settings, it's always manual.

Among those containers there's one I use for all things Google (Gmail etc). Which was great, as it allowed me to use both my personal Google account and G-Suite integrated with the workplace's SSO by simply using a default container for work stuff.

I updated Firefox to version 127.0.1, after which I discovered that clicking on Google Docs links in external applications now opens a tab in that custom container I created for my personal use. Which is clearly inconvenient, as most Google Docs links I open are work-related, so my personal account has nothing to do with them. Opening same links from within Firefox, e.g. by clicking on a bookmark, still opens a default container tab.

As I mentioned, there are no explicit association between Google links and that container, the "Limit to designated sites" option is switched off.

Is there anything I can do to revert back to the old behaviour, which is opening every external link in a default container?

FYI there's a Reddit thread which highlights the same kind of behaviour. No answers to how to fix it though
