How do I assign a website to a Firefox Container, as the Firefox support article "Multi-Account Containers" mentioned?

Hello- Please clarify the article "Multi-Account Containers" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers#w_open-links-in-new-tabs-and-containers . Number 4 in the section "What you can do with Multi-Account Containers" says that you can "Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container." The article doesn't describe how, and it's not obvious to me. Please describe specifically how to do this. Thanks!

Just open the website in a desired container, then click the Containers icon. There is a checkbox: Always open in this container.

Hi TyDraniu- Thanks for the quick response! I don't see the Containers icon. Where is it supposed to be, and what does it look like? Attached is what I see.

That worked. Thanks TyDaniu! It's odd that you can use the feature without the addon, but need it to use all of the features.
