Why does site asks me to accept privacy policy again on every new tab I open within this site?

I am a new Linux user with an installation of Ubuntu 18.04 and firefox is the default browser.

When I visit a site I am asked to accept the site's privacy policy.Once this is done, I click a page within this site to open in a new tab and in the new tab I am asked again to accept the site's privacy policy! This happens in all new tabs I open within a site.

I have tried disabling enhanced tracking protection completely or for specific sites (the "shield" sign to the left of the site address) but there is no change. I would imagine it is a matter of the site not finding a cookie in my machine, so it doesn't recognize that I have visited the site again and treats me as a new visitor, right?

I have fiddled with all firefox privacy and security settings but there is no change as well.

Please enlighten me :)

thanks in advance
