Youtube keeps track of what you Watch and what you Search for.

You can clear and disable this information in your Youtube account History. Sign in to Youtube select History on the left select Manage All Activity on the right

I also meant to mention that Youtube also collects Watch & Search History when you are not signed in. select History on the left You can Clear & Pause both the Watch & Search History.

Tracking is different. The multi-account container and ETP in Firefox should block that.

Cache and History will store your Preferences from the site. I would Clear & Pause (disable) the History in Youtube first, then Clear Cache, Cookies & Site Data in Firefox.
