User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:40.0) Gecko/40.0 Firefox/40.0 Build ID: 20150805074035 Firefox for Android Steps to reproduce: I walways enable incognito mode manually Expected results: There should be a setting like in the desktop version to always enable incognito. Because for 1 I like the dark theme better, 2 I prefer not to store history. I never use history and I feel storing it is only a privacy concern.

We have an option to always open external links in private browsing: bug 1065004. Ally, why didn't we move forward with pb all-the-time? Is there another bug open for that work?

We didn't move it forward because the consensus from Product is that very few people want pb all the time; we would need people to have a way to open a normal tab and a clean satisfactory UX for that was never determined. Interaction with tab queues was a concern as well. I understand from mfinkle that 'always open external links in private browsing' is likely to be backed out soon. The closest we have to incognito all the time, as I understand is the 'always clear on exit'. In general I support parity with Desktop. Barbara & Margaret, given our renewed focus on privacy, I'd like us to consider this for 45. What do you think?
