The wrong screenshot link to random old screenshot images on my sd card. The only problem is url presence at bookmark name.

I apologize for the slow response – I'm not actively working on this feature (telemetry is taking priority) but it's on my radar. The feature is behind Nightly flags so we shouldn't ship this beyond our Nightly tester base.

That being said, this is a good catch! We shouldn't be taking screenshots when in private browsing. It could be an easy fix, but we're having issues where screenshots can get added at arbitrary times so I'm not certain that would fix this issue until the other bugs are fixed.
