Pre Per-Window PB, Lightweight Themes would display even in permanent private browsing mode. Post Per-Window PB, LW Themes only display in normal tabs, with permanent private browsing mode off. IMO the previous behaviour is preferable, as there is no need to differentiate tabs when they are all private tabs.
And a patch that seems to work on Linux64. Not sure if this will break any tests however...

This is really in demand, see: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/955230. Is there any way we could move this to an earlier milestone?

It seems like most complaints are about regular private browsing windows. This patch only fixes lightweight themes in *permanent* PB mode though. Note that it is probably not a problem to enable lightweight themes for users on Windows, see duplicate bug 854126 comment 5. Maybe you could add a check for that case, too.

The verifyme is for FF21 specifically.
Verified as fixed on Windows 7 64bit, Ubuntu 12.10 32bit and Mac OSX 10.7.5 with Firefox 21 beta 3 (20130416200523). LW themes are now also applied in permanent PB mode.

Thanks Ioana. Can you please verify this against the latest Aurora and Nightly builds when you get a chance?

Verified as fixed on the 04/17 Aurora and Nightly builds - Win7 64bit, Ubuntu 12.10 32bit and Mac OSX 10.8.3 64bit.
(In reply to :Ehsan Akhgari (needinfo? me!) from comment #12) > https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/rev/1422a858262d Well, it seems that the fix has not reached FF 23.0 under Linux (Fedora 18): personas are still disabled in what you call "regular" private windows.

This landed in Firefox 21, 22, and 23, and was verified to be working. If you are having an issue in the latest release please file a new bug and mark it as dependent on this bug.
Note that regular private windows were not intended to be affected by this change. Only file a new issue if lightweight themes are not showing up when Never Remember History is enabled.
