I use private browsing at work on lunch. I noticed that if you cut and past anything, it stays in your browser when you leave "private" and go back to regular (work) browsing.

An oversight perhaps?

Neat trick considering SeaMonkey doesn't have a Private Browsing mode officially supported aside from Private Windows. ;)

Anyway, this is expected behavior since Gecko 33:

Which I am all for. The clipboard is OS, not application.

Then what is "control + shift + B"? Feel free to reword my question.

I guess what we should really be asking, is how is FF's Private Browsing different from SeaMonkey's ? cause I didn't really understand that comment either?

The underlying private browsing stuff does work in SeaMonkey, but it's not really officially supported aside from Private Window... which is why you won't find a menu item for it or an option under the Preferences panel.

And TMK since SM inherits all of that from Firefox code, I don't think there is any substantial difference. And I agree LN, Firefox shouldn't have been removing data from the OS clipboard to begin with.

As far as I know the only thing we are missing is "Permanent Private Browsing" mode. We don't have Private Tabs either - but then I don't think Firefox exposes the private tab feature either (You can get the latter with an extension).
