Private search windows appear on the Task View in Windows 10. This is unprotected in any circumstance and includes all details eg bank. True? Open to all

When you choose a private window in Firefox, it is supposed to confer some privacy. However, I now observe that the private window appear alongside an ordinary search window on the Task Manager View, This is open to anyone viewing the Task View window in Windows 10 - ie anyone with access including the OS provider, and other similar.It remains at least for the duration of the window being open. Is this possible to correct or is it a flaw in the "privacy" concept? Thank you A Crail
