Previously selected links don't remain identified with a rectangle
In previous versions of Firefox, I could view a web page with various links, and I could select a link to open in a new tab. Once I was finished in the new tab, I could close the new tab, and return to the original web page, and find the previously selected link because it still had a rectangle outline around it.
In the latest versions of Firefox, this rectangle no longer appears, so it's impossible to know where I was on the original web page.
Is there a way to get this feature back?

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
How do I check "hardware acceleration or userChrome.css"?
I went to about:config, and I found both of them there. Changing "hardware acceleration" didn't have any effect. userChrome.css was an undefined boolean.
This problem cropped up in recent Firefox updates. I think it's a design change, or UI change. It's horrible. There must be some way to make it operate the way it did before.
