Permanent cookies set on same site in different containers lost after second browser restart #397
I was using containers previously with
Tested Firefox 52 and Nightly 55 with

Upstream Bug 1334587.

I couldn't reproduce this using the latest fx54.0a2. I logged into several different websites using a variation of default containers (Personal, Work etc..) and several custom containers and went through:
@nkestrel, it could it be possible that you ran into #374 when the container experiment was updated to 2.0.0? When you noticed this happen, were all your custom containers destroyed as well? #374 would have destroyed all the custom containers but would have left the default containers (Personal, Work, Banking, Shopping) intact. Have you noticed this happening on a regular basis? Or did it just happen the one time?
If this is a regular occurrence, could you provide a bit more detail? Are you being logged out of all your sessions across all containers on a regular basis? Does this happen when restoring sessions or after restarting FX? Is it only particular websites that you're noticing sessions being logged out?
