With the patch on bug 460346 we support the "Always On" PB mode but the used pref name is mis-leading. No-one will identify "browser.privatebrowsing.autostart" with the "Always On" PB mode. Instead we should use "browser.privatebrowsing.alwaysOn" for the pref name.

Mconnor or Beltzner, would such a change be possible for Fx3.1? Or is it too late for? IMO we should change it ASAP (if it is wanted). We are still in beta stage. If it will not happen for 3.1, we shouldn't change this pref anymore.

mconnor, beltzner: ping?
this isn't necessary, or important, IMO.
