Hello.

As far as I noticed, when I visit a particular site and save credentials of login form fields in normal mode, after I switch to "private mode" Firefox offers that user-password combination created in normal mode before?

Isn't it abnormal behaviour?

Shouldn't Firefox always render login page without offering saved password when I click on username input field when it is running on Private Mode?

Thanks!

No this is quite normal and expected behavior, the only difference between regular and PB modeis that in PB mode you can't store new passwords apart from using "Create New Login" in Lockwise.
You can still fill a saved name and password as disabling such a feature would be very unpracticable.

Thanks a lot for the info, friend. Cheers.
