I upgraded Firefox for iOS to 1.1 from the AppStore. There is no "private browsing" button in the tab view (next to the '+') as I was told there should be. I have no way to start a private browser.
it is on iPad 2 with iOS 8.3
I'm pretty sure Private Browsing is limited to iOS 9 and higher.
iOS 9 based on available APIs. (Hubert, iOS 9 on the iPad 2 is terribly slow)

Note that at no point the "What's new" say iOS 9 is needed for private browsing. That's part of the problem that WONFIXING will not address.
iTunes only shows a little of the description, but if you "...More" you'll see: BROWSE PRIVATELY - Your personal information belongs to you. In Private Browsing mode, Firefox won’t remember any of your history or cookies, but new bookmarks will be saved. - Delete your browsing history, passwords and more in a single tap. - Choose the private data you want to remove. - **iOS 9 required for Private Browsing mode**

Created attachment 8688068 [details] Screenshot from the app store. As I said, it doesn't show the requirement in the App Store description.

Maybe we want to be picky, but what I posted is what one see when updating the app. Not the other one. But anyway. I seems it is not important.
