Stop Facebook from tracking me in Private Browsing

I installed the Facebook Container some time ago. But recently realized that Facebook is tracking me, because I'm getting targeted adds on FB. I have also had Firefox set to always use Private Browsing. Today I discovered that the Facebook Container dose not work in Private Browsing. SO, What is the best way to keep FB and others out of my business (short of not using FB)? All this time I thought I was protecting myself and I have not been. HELP!

Yes, containers do not work in Private Browsing mode so you can't restrict Facebook cookies. It's your choice whether to use PB mode or the Facebook Container extension.

All PB mode windows share the same PB mode cookies jar, you need to close all PB windows (on Mac this means to Quit Firefox in permanent PB mode) or close and restart Firefox to start with a fresh PB cookies jar.
