Closing all private tabs does not delete sessions

Hi everyone!

Maybe someone can help me with my question.

If I use Firefox for iOS in private mode, it seems closing all tabs won’t remove the active sessions. I have to close the app completely to remove them.

For example: I visit Firefox Help in private mode and log in. Afterwards I close all open private tabs. If I visit the website again, I am still logged in.

Only if I close the app completely, no matter if I close the tabs first or not, the session is reseted.

Is this behaviour a bug or the way it should work?

In Safari for iOS it works like I would have expected it, without the need to close the app or even all tabs. If I close all tabs of a specific website, the session is gone.

Kindest regards I like trees
