This is a question for those familiar with the two Firefox add-ons: Multi-Account Containers and Temporary Containers.

Normally if you open a page in a container, and click a link on the page, it will open a new tab in the same parent container.

But if you have the extension Temporary Containers installed, you can right-click the link and choose to open it in a "No Container". Now the new tab will open in the Default Firefox container, just like any other tab.

I am looking to do the above automatically, i.e.: 1. When I open a tab in a container. 2. And open a page in that container, and click any link. 3. It should automatically open in the Default Firefox container (not in the parent container, and not in any other container).

As of May 2022, you can do this without installing any additional addon.

Assuming you're using the official Multi-Account Containers addon, click on "Manage Containers" in that addon's popup, then on the container you want this to work on (e.g., the "Social Media" container in your example), then select "Limit to Designated Sites".

Here is the solution. I did not find it, a good person shared it with me. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/container-outgoing-links
