1. Open a new private browsing window.
2. Keep hitting refresh.
3. Notice that occasionally, the "See how it works" and "Private Browsing" links are colored blue, as if the :link rule did not apply.
Chances are this is a regression from bug 1477773... Private browsing disables :visited, so if the :link state is applied async that patch noops it.
