Steps to re-create.

1 - open Firefox - click private browsing.
2 - browse sites on private browsing.

Now I want to open a non private browsing web page, so i right click the firefox icon in the task bar - and click Firefox - this opens a new browser window - i then untick the menu option to turn private browsing off - it closes all the open private browsing windows that i had on previously in the different window.

Private browsing should be per -page or set of tabs dependently and not overall-session dependant.
