ingeneral multi-tasking doesn't work well
« on: December 13, 2019, 08:38:53 AM »
when I'm on ancestry.com on multiple browsers, multiple screens, researching hundreds of people, it used to function with different user logins ie logged in as joe, sally or paul and moving data around the three persons.  Now when I try to do the same thing, it's a battle to maintain the separation.  I change the user on one it changes on the other automatically, it's like something past the browser is tracking me and altering the settings.  Is this a multitasking issue or is it a loss in browsing privacy issue and is there a way to resolve it?

Most likely a privacy issue, yes.  Certain websites are notorious for tracking, and especially anything connecting to Google Analytics.

Whatever browser(s) you're using, set your privacy options to maximum and install a good tracking prevention add-on/extension.

chrome doesn't seem to function at all, don't know why.  Opera and firefox are what's left.  If I login as a user on one the login changes to theuser same user on second browser but if third browser is different browser then login tolerated being different.  This adds complications to managing stuff and it would be a little easier if I had a third working browser, but chrome won't hunt, only on it's terms and since that is not dependable or useful I quit using it.  Like a pet that uses the carpet, no more house privileges.
I was hoping it would be something as simple as installing a "multitasking something" I've overlooked or doesn't install automatically along with typical updates.

Have you tried to use private window (firefox) or incognito mode (chrome) ?
