Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5

Even in Private Browsing, History is accessible. That is, history of non-private mode visits is manageable even in Private mode. Am not sure if this should be allowed, but 'Forget this site' feature is not available in History if you are in Private Browsing mode.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter Private Browsing mode
2.Show All History
3.Right click on any history item

Actual Results:  
Forget this site option was not shown

Expected Results:  
Forget this site option should be present irrespective of private/normal mode

Yes, we should enable this menu item in Firefox 3.6 onwards.  This could possibly use the API from bug 463607.
