Sticky branch in GitLab web UI?

Is there a way to make the branch I’m working on in GitLab UI “sticky”? It seems like the branch dropdown in the UI always defaults to the default branch. So when I go to CI/CD::Pipelines and click Run Branch, I always have to go find the branch in the dropdown. Even though it’s always the same branch–the one I’m working on, not the one that gets built for everyone else.

When you choose a new branch in the UI, it doesn’t add anything to the URL or fragment (the part after #), so you AFAICT there’s no way to link to "Run Pipeline for ".
