Loading about:addons new window focuses an existing about:addons tab in a different window
Steps 1. Launch Firefox DevEdition 59 beta 14. 2. Open the Add-ons Manager from menu [≡] → Add-ons. Expected results: 1. The browser is successfully launched. 2. The "about:addons" page is successfully loaded in a new tab. Results: 1. The browser is successfully launched. 2. The "about:addons" page is loaded in a new tab in a Default window not in Private Browsing window.
I'm having trouble understanding the steps here. At what point do you open a private window, and when do you open the add-ons page?
Component: Private Browsing → Tabbed Browser
1. Launch Firefox with default profile. 2. Open the Add-ons Manger. 3. Open the private window. 4. Open the Add-ons Manager in private window. Then appears the window with default profile and with the "about:addons" page opened (what was done in step 2).
The same behaviour occurs with two non-private windows as well.
Summary: "about:addons" tab in Private Browsing window opens in Default window → Loading about:addons new window focuses an existing about:addons tab in a different window
This is intended behavior.
