That is not really what i am after.

My use case is, there are a bunch of websites that I like to open in non-private
tabs to avoid the two-factor authentication. However, I would like links on these
websites to be opened in private-tabs. Currently I have to right-click to do that,
which is what i'm trying to avoid.

Thanks

See https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/237
and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1318388
So, looks like required changes from Firefox side...

Thanks for quick reaction, I'm not facing any problems with Your extension and Nightly, but Mozilla devs knows better ;) Hope for You that You can sort this out! Cheers.

Hello, just to inform you that the keyboard shortcut for private tab and the "open new private tab" button is now broken in the last Firefox nightly (2016-12-29)

Right clicking any link and using "open link in new private tab" and merging private windows to non private windows continues to work fine, as does clicking external links when a private tab is focused.

What I've found on FF Developer version is the tab context menu toggle item 'Private tab' doesn't function anymore (it doesn't change the tab from normal to private and vice versa).

Regular private new tabs continues to work however, as does opening links in private tabs.

Possible bug, latest Nightly and latest (fixed) private tab, str:

1.Open new browser session.
2.Open new tab
3.Try to make New Tab private

What happen: Tab will reload but will not become "private"

Workaround: Make any other tab "private", after this "New Tab" can be also "private" without problem, until browser restart ;)

0.2.1 Still not AMO...

Another small cosmetic bug, interfere with Classic Theme Restorer, I use CTR to restore old "Firefox/Nightly" button on tab bar in left top corner, when You make private tab this button change color to purple, atm You need to switch between tabs to take effect. I'm not sure if this is PT or CTR problem.

Problem touch only about: tabs, new tab, about:config, on regular tabs working fine :)

Just installed this Add-on but not working in macOS Firefox 50.1.0 with latest CTR (not even appearing as per screen shots) is listed in my extensions though and have restarted.

What am I doing wrong?
