uBlock Origin stores this data in local storage (IndexedDB) in the profile folder. In PB mode it is not possible to access data stored in the profile folder, this is a limitation of extensions and Private Browsing mode and may change in the future. Most extensions warn that they do not work in Private Browsing mode.

Ok then I'll just use normal browsing and try to remember to clear history after each session hopefully clearing history won't delete any of uBlock Origins filters.

You can set the Browser options to clear all history and cache as well when closing the Browser. Maybe you should look into that as well as I know that works as I done that before. But also if you don't want others using your computer maybe you should create a login password so only you have access to your account and another for other user. So your actions and browsing history is kept separate from prying eyes.

This is about uBlock Origin not working properly in Private Browsing mode, so the extension isn't blocking (all) content. Some extensions also do not work on Mozilla websites.
