Description

There's a description of the "Run in Private Windows" string on the detail page for an extension. The string is worded for the case when running in PB is allowed, but this seems confusing when you haven't granted PB access to the extension.

Current string: Extension will work in Private Windows, and have access to your online activities.

Expected string (showing that this is the allowed case): When allowed, the extension will work in Private Windows, and have access to your online activities.

Meridel, should this string be changed to reflect that this is what happens when the "Allowed" option is selected?

Thank you for sharing the screenshot—the string is indeed problematic! Here's the revision:

When allowed, the extension will work in Private Windows and have access to your online activities there.

Unfortunately that is long enough to wrap in a strange way on my system. If it's longer, it looks fine since the sentence wraps.

Devtools is locking up on me so I cannot look into the css on label.

I don't think we need to say the part about "will work in Private Windows," since the string "Run in Private Windows" says the same thing. The point that ISN'T clear is that the extension will have access to your stuff when allowed to run in Private Windows. 

How about this?

"When allowed, the extension will have access to your online activities while private browsing. Learn more"
