Hi.

I run Linux Mint 19.x with Firefox 69. I use the following extensions to help keep some privacy and reduce bloat: ublock origin, https everywhere, privacy badger, canvas blocker, decentreyes, and smart referer.

I realize that YouTube is the opposite of privacy but here's my problem: every time I open YouTube it gives me video recommendations based on what I have open in other tabs. If I have a tab open about red squirrel nutrition, I get videos about red squirrel feeding.

How do I go about stopping one tab from stealing information from another tab?

Thanks.
