Private Window Remembring Site, Maybe

Hi All.

If I use a Private Window and start typing a URL of a site I visited before in Private, right after I type the first 2 of 9 letters, it fills in the other 7 letters.

Is Firefox remembering that site or is my default search engine, DuckDuckGo?

Did you close all open PB mode windows beforehand because all PB mode windows share the same session data that only gets purged when all PB mode windows are closed (or Firefox is closed)?

Did you ever visit such a website before in normal mode or have bookmarked such a webpage?
