How to stop multiple tab login recognition?

Posted

Today, I was doing some work from home. I had my gmail tab open and was logged in. I got board and decided to take a break and opened a new tab for youtube. I quickly noticed that it had already logged me in with the gmail account I was using. I logged out of the youtube account on its tab and switched back to my gmail to find it had logged me out there as well. How do I stop this? This may be a minor problem, but when I go surfing on youtube I like to start from scratch so to speak, their suggestions from my logged in status only show things I'm "interested in". Sometimes I like to learn new things...

If you can help me, thank you in advance, Chturga

Hi Chturga, it's the cookies. You can think of Firefox as having two "cookie jars":

  • regular windows cookie jar
  • private windows cookie jar

Tabs and windows share cookies within their jar.

If you want to open a new isolated tab or window (or group of tabs or windows) without using private browsing, you can use containers. Each container has its own cookie jar.

This article will get you started: Multi-Account Containers.

Note: although the built-in containers have names like "Shopping" you can create a new container for YouTube and name it YouTube for easier reference.

Does that work?
