I recently created a new profile. When I visit youtube, my preferences arent saved. For example, the sidebar to youtube keeps sliding out every time I visit youtube. This never happened with my old profile since it would always auto-hide. This is a cookies issue. I tried to copy and paste 'cookies.sqlite' from the old profile to the new profile. But the sidebar keeps sliding out. Look at the screenshot showing the sidebar. I dont want to click the hamburger icon to hide it all the time I visit youtube. How do I auto-hide it?

I gather you're logged in to YT in each case?

Make another, complete, copy of your original Profile.
Open that copy.
Visit YT.

Does it still work as you wish?
