User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140605174243 Steps to reproduce: While Private Browsing, pressing crtl+N should open new window in Private Browsing. In the current situation, the user doesn't noticed that the Private Browsing was removed when he opened a new window. This is especially important for those who do not use tabs. I know also that in IE it works like I said.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to report a problem. I think that Ctrl+N intended behavior is only (and always) to open normal windows: you can open a new Private Browsing window with Ctrl+Shift+P. In addition to that, the user is able to always tell if (s)he's in Private Browsing mode just looking if there's the purple mask symbol on. IMO this is not a bug, but a design choice. I'm moving to Private Browsing component, though, so that the people of the relevant team can decide if a more explicit warning is needed when the user passes from Private to Normal browsing via Ctrl+N. Cheers, Francesca I agree though, that the passage from Private to non-Private browsing when using Ctrl+N to open a new window is something that could be made more visible to the user. The only way to tell that

What appears to be true, sometimes differs from reality. I'm speaking from my experience...
