Open shortcuts directly in predefined container

Would be awesome if I could edit a shortcut and assign it to a specific container so that the shortcut (or even any page in the same domain) opens automatically in a predefined container.

PRIVATE BROWSER DOES NOT CLEAR COOKIES OR CACHE

I logged in to Gumtree (Australia). I closed the private window (FF private browser). I open a new firefox window in private mode and go to gumtree expecting to sign in again and it seems that I am already signed in. This means the cookies and cache were not cleared as they should be in private browsing mode. I also want to register my objection to being forced to make an account and then post a public post instead of being able to make an anonymous private report directly to Mozilla.

Advanced content blocking on iOS

Outside of Safari on iOS, regular users and power users alike are sorely missing advanced content blocking capabilities. In this regard, even browsers like Brave which claim strong ad-blocking abilities are a downgrade in comparison to AdGuard’s ability to convert almost any external filter list into native Content Blocker rules. Where Mozilla could differentiate itself here and cement Firefox as the iOS privacy browser of choice would be to allow users to supply Enhanced Tracking Protection...

Clear cookies and history of each containers separately

It would be nice an option to clear cookies each of container separately. I think it will reinforce security. Thanks to community for maintaining Firefox. Samuel

Ability to open multi-account containers via links

The first use listed for multi-account containers is to log into multiple accounts on one website at the same time. However, without the ability to make bookmark and home shortcuts open in a specific container, this is tedious, requiring one to open a new container and then open the website. This functionality could be easily implemented with a custom redirect link (or "container link") like so: container:<Container_Name>/<url> It should be noted that this should only work for...

Password encoded Bookmarks Folder

Why not max profits by implementing password encoded bookmarks folder to tie customer to brand and browser? (porn bookmarks security) User can delete folder, reset browser or uninstall, or "forget password to bookmark folder" to have password reset emailed to user.

Better management of cookie whitelist

Firefox allows whitelisting cookies that will remain even when clearing cookies. Right now we can whitelist cookies one by one in about:preferences#privacy > Manage exceptions. It's great that we can do this, but the process is cumbersome. Two possible improvements: 1) When viewing currently stored cookies in about:preferences#privacy > manage data, I'd like to be able to select items and mark them safe (copying them to the whitelist). From that point on they would look different...

Fight scams, clickbait, and fraudulent advertising on home page

The Firefox default homepage includes a section of suggested articles and advertising from "Pocket". Often these are clickbait or outright scams, such as the "less than 50 miles a day" ads. I understand I can dismiss these for myself, but there needs to be a way to report them, get them evaluated and removed for everyone if they are fraudulent. If this content is managed by "Pocket" and they can't provide a way to do this, we need to stop doing business with them and find someone who can.
