Whats is wrong by putting a footnote in a note frame? In this example, the first footnote (in a standard frame) is correctly displayed, but the content of the second one (in a note frame) is invisible…

\documentclass[notes]{beamer}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Test}
  Here is a footnote\footnote{The FN's content!}
\end{frame}

\note{
  This also is a footnote\footnote{Hidden content! Haha!}
}

\end{document}

    You can use a minipage: \note{\begin{minipage}{\textwidth} This also is a footnote\footnote{Hidden content! Haha!} \end{minipage} } – user194703 Dec 3 '19 at 16:37

The beamer template note page doesn't print footnotes. So I searched for the code that prints the footnote on regular slides, and added it to the note page template using the \addtobeamertemplate macro (and I added some vertical space to have it aligned properly).

\documentclass{beamer}
\setbeameroption{show notes}
\makeatletter
\addtobeamertemplate{note page}{}
{%
  \vfill
  \ifvoid\beamer@footins%  
  \else%
    \begingroup
      \usebeamercolor*[fg]{footnote}%
      \footnoterule%
      \unvbox \beamer@footins%
      \global\setbox\beamer@footins=\box\voidb@x%
    \endgroup 
  \fi%
  \vskip.5em
}
\makeatother
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Test}
  Here is a footnote\footnote{The FN's content!}
\end{frame}

\note{
  This also is a footnote\footnote{Hidden content! Haha!}
}

\end{document}
