private browsing remembers pages, and may restore them after re-opening browser
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 Build ID: 20141013104125 Steps to reproduce: 1 i did some private browsing. 2 i closed the browser, and turned my computer off. 3 next time i started up my computer i opened firefox, which updated(nightly 36.0a1, 2014-10-13) Actual results: every single private window i had opened and closed in the last session was re-opened. the last private window i had open was restored in a regular window, the "nightly was updated" page was loaded in a 2nd tab in the same window. Expected results: the private session should have been forgotten the moment i closed the windows. a private session should never be restored into a regular session. once i opened firefox after the update it should've only loaded the after-update page.
If you open your preferences and visit the Privacy tab, what setting is selected for History?
Also, can you reproduce this behaviour regularly, or was it a once-off problem?
