Command line option fails
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 Build ID: 20180516032328 Steps to reproduce: open cmd go to firefox folder type: firefox -private-window $URL Actual results: A new regular tab opened with $URL Expected results: A new private window/tab should've opened with $URL I have tried: - private-window "google.com" - private window https://google.com - private window URL google.com and some other varieties, can't get it to work on W10. Most recent updated version.
(In reply to Wouter from comment #0) > type: firefox -private-window $URL That tries to open http://www.$url.com in a private window, which results in a Server Not Found error. Is Firefox already running when you launch the command? If yes, is a private window already open? > I have tried: > - private-window "google.com" > - private window https://google.com > - private window URL google.com -private-window https://google.com should work, with 2 hyphens and 0 spaces in the command line parameter. -private-window google.com should also be fine.
