Same thing on Brave. I don't really understand the technical details of this tracking other than that it's a pixel tag or similar. Have you tried Cache Killer on FF or Chromium?On Firefox the page visit count stopped at 2.
@Tiamati - ClearURLs filters eTag tracking headers and doesn't claim to deal with cache-related issues. You could try Classic Cache Killer and see if this tickles your fancy. It has a lot of users maybe but otherwise not much info about this extension. I think @TairikuOkami uses it, so you might ask him.
Or you could use Ctrl - R in Brave or similar shortcuts in other browsers.
