Firefox always starts in private window; never remembers history

I am trying to help my daughter figure out a problem she has with Firefox on her Windows 10 laptop. She has the latest version of Firefox installed.

Every time she starts Firefox, it starts in a private window. Even after closing it and opening a "normal" window, the choice to open the tabs from the last session is dimmed. There is no history.

I have checked her privacy and security settings and it's at the default position. It is not set to open in a private window, and it is not set to forget history.

I am baffled!

I can't seem to get the firefox multi-account containers add-on to work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times and closing a re-opening the browser. I've tried disabling all other add-ons in case they were interfering and, as far as I know, I have the most recent version of the browser. It shows it installing and then nothing happens and the container symbol doesn't show up. What's going wrong?

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

Using Ubuntu 18.04.1 on both my main device and on a virtual machine. The Private Browsing Window feature previously worked on my main device and is currently working on my virtual machine. I am able to select the feature on both OS, but on the main device (or OS on the physical device) a normal browsing window opens instead of a private browsing window. IPv6 is turned off and using a VPN. Any assistance is appreciated.
