Is there a way to open certain webpages or web addresses (tab, window, pinned, home page), always automatically in private browsing? In other words: Is there a way for Private Tab always remember certain webpages or addresses?

Private tabs aren't saved in sessions and therefore disappears after restart...
Also there is policies for add-ons, that forbid to store any private data: http://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2010/02/23/private-browsing-support-required-for-add-ons/

But you can use something like Auto Private extension.

Or you can use Custom Buttons or something similar to open private tabs:
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab#privatetabreadytoopentabs
Code: Select all
privateTab.readyToOpenTabs(true);
// Open normal tabs
gBrowser.addTab("https://mozilla.org/");
gBrowser.addTab("https://google.com/");
// Open pinned tab
var tab = gBrowser.addTab("https://addons.mozilla.org/");
gBrowser.pinTab(tab);
privateTab.stopToOpenTabs();

Ok, I understand the issue with pinned tabs... although don't agree with Firefox's logic (that deletes pinned tabs when history is deleted). In my opinion, should not be necessary relation between the 2 functions (I think that a pinned tab is like a bookmark). But this is a problem between me and Firefox :)

Now, regarding Auto Private + Private Tab = 100% Solved my problem with Home Pages / Web Addresses. Thanks a lot!
I believe it will be nice in some future, to unified both addons.
Or better: To create an addon where Private browsing is by default, having the alternative of a simple mouse click on the Tab / Window / Page... for changing to normal browsing.

Any way... thanks a lot for the addon and your answers.

The best for you and happy 2015!

Also you can use "private:" prefix to create private bookmarks, e.g. private:https://www.google.com/

Oh, I forgot to write that this is for middle-click on built-in search menu item...

Edit: I think this is to do with using the Fast Dial and other Speed Dial extensions which seem to make it look like the new page isn't empty.
Yes, some Speed Dial-like extensions may break this feature. Which one you use?
Also there is hidden options for new tabs:
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/blob/0.1.7.3/defaults/preferences/prefs.js#L36-L40


Hi, unfortunately the options didn't seem to change anything. Here's the extension that i'm using: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... fast-dial/

And the STR is:
1. Open private tab
2. Click the new tab button
Got: The new tab opens as a private tab
Expected: The new tab should be a normal tab

Oh, I see, this was caused by fix for #152.
Now should be corrected: https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/commit/f42acb1cef50fba52d9a7f3e7d256f3669d84468

Test version: private_tab-0.1.7.4pre2-fx-sm.xpi (source).

[Upd] Oops, this fix breaks inheritance mechanism. I'll try to correct...

Looks like I can't (easily) fix compatibility with Fast Dial...
But this can be fixed through about:config:
browser.newtab.url = chrome://fastdial/content/fastdial.html

Combination of Private Tab + AdBlock (or uBlock) causes cookies from first openned private tab to leak.
How to reproduce:
- Firefox with clean profile
- Install PrivateTab and AdBlock
- Set firefox to start with blank page, clean cookies
- Restart firefox
- Goto cookies, there will be something from mozilla and google only
- Open new private tab and goto any sites that sets cookies on first visit, I tested with livejournal.com
- Wait for site to load, close the tab
- Goto cookies, notice cookies from livejournal.com :)

Then clean cookies, disable adblock and do all again. There will be no cookie.

Opening private _window_ works ok with adblock, cookies do not leak.
