Re: Mozilla bug 1323873 - Allow tabs to change user contexts when navigating
Thanks for reaffirming.
In the Outlook Web App (OWA) obfuscated URL + redirection use case at https://github.com/mozilla/multi-account-containers/issues/428#issuecomment-334981806 the first screenshot shows me aiming for no containment only because I know the sender etc. well enough to be certain that what’s linked need not be contained.
More commonplace OWA use cases will involve relatively careless clicks where the user does not require a context menu. In some such cases there will be dual perspectives.
Where I’m an onlooker (e.g. IT support with attention to privacy, security, phishing etc.) I’d like to see redirection to either:
ideally traditional private browsing, although I don’t know whether a private tab can be in the midst of a window where any tab is non-private; or
- a container that’s conceptually private, and (@kesselborn please correct me if I’m wrong) I guess that’s somewhat in line with the experimental ‘private’ container that featured in https://github.com/kesselborn/conex/issues/61 (although we didn’t mention redirection in that context).
From the perspective of the end user – with or without me overlooking – it is, in my experience, less likely that a change of containment (or away from containment, to private browsing in the same tab) will be appreciated or understood.
Potentially tricky stuff!
