I have a Container named AbcContainer in my Firefox. Lets say, by mistake, I opt for a specific site (say http://example.org) to always open in that container. How do I go about clearing this preference, so that site http://example.org opens in Default Container going forward?

I get the below prompt, when opening http://example.org from Default Container. But, checking the "Remember my decision" checkbox and choosing "Open in Current Container" doesn't yield the desired results.

  1. Open the website from within the container you want to remove it from.
  2. Right-click on the container icon to the right of the URL in the address bar.
  3. Uncheck the submenu item "Always open in this container"

    @AshBerlin-Taylor For some reason, it doesn't always appear. I thought it was a bug for me.

    I know this is an old question (and answer), but I just had the same problem and just in case it helps someone: The container submenu only appeared for me when I opened the page in the container that I wanted to remove it from. @Flimm, maybe add that detail to your answer so it's more visible?

  • Yes, I was also not able to see the option. But when opened the page in the container that I wanted to remove it from, then the tick was visible. Jul 16, 2021 at 5:36

    It didn't show up when right clicking on the page, but i found it by right clicking on the container icon in the address bar while on the page Dec 23, 2021 at 16:20

There is an option to configure in Container's management panel manage lists

  1. Open Containers add-on
  2. Click "Manage Containers"
  3. Choose the container you want to manage
  4. Click "Manage Site List..."

Now you are able to remove the sites.


Finally found it by following @Xinyu steps:
