Firefox opens home page as well as link
A few versions ago, Firefox (Mac) changed behavior when clicking on a link in an outside program. Specifically, if Firefox is not running and I click a link in Outlook, Firefox opens the clicked link in a tab but also opens my homepage in a second tab. Since I'm only interested in the clicked link at this time I don't want it to open my home page, just the clicked link. This problem is exacerbated by my.yahoo.com which causes a switch from the tab containing the clicked link to the homepage tab.
How do I get Firefox to only open the link that I clicked and not my homepage in addition? This was the normal behavior until a few months ago.

This is a known bug on Mac when you open an external link when Firefox isn't running.
