Hi,

I am using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers addon with Firefox 116.0.2 (on apple silicon). I use the containers to isolate sessions from different websites. I have a container for my Instagram session. However, when I open a private browsing window and go to instagram, I find that I am already logged in. I thought private browsing windows were completely new and blank.

How is it possible that my instagram session is available in private browsing?

Thanks in advance

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

I think that the problem is that I had multiple private browsing windows and in one I had logged into instagram, then I closed the other private windows thinking that I closed all of them. When I opened a new private window I discovered that I was still logged in because private windows themselves are not isolated between each other.
