Why are vectors outside the artboard displayed when saved?

I'm having an inconvenient problem in Illustrator. For example, when creating anything that is off the drawing board:

 

Captura de tela 2020-12-29 121625.png

 

These objects outside the artboard are displayed when saving, for example, in the browser:

 

Captura de tela 2020-12-29 122113.png

 

Why is this happening?

Check the box that says Use Artboards to export only the artboard and not everything.

I cannot reproduce this.

When was your last computer reboot? Maybe it's time.

If that doesn't help, maybe reset the preferences? Which will destroy all settings, so you might want to reanem the folder as described in here:

What New Document Profile did you use to start this file? If it was Video, then there is a possibility of another artboard the size of the work area involved.

Note that the squares are not being ignored. They are half inside the drawing board and half outside those who are outside should be ignored when saving.
