Amazon Container

Amazon Container isolates your Amazon activity from the rest of your web activity in order to prevent Amazon from tracking you outside of the Amazon ecosystem via third party cookies.

What is Amazon Container?
"Amazon Container" is a Firefox add-on that isolates your Amazon website activity from the rest of your web usage. This inhibits Amazon from tracking you through third-party cookies outside of its own ecosystem. It deletes existing Amazon cookies upon installation and ensures Amazon opens in a separate container during subsequent use. It enhances user privacy but may limit certain Amazon functionalities.

For me, there;s one issue I have with this add on, and that's the symbol I choose keeps changing it back to a the briefcase. I think it is because of your add on, it might be because of Firefox Multi-Account Containers, but I wish there was a way to keep the symbol from changing.
