Description

5 years ago
Sometimes I would like to highlight a word/phrase and search for it privately. What I currently do is copy and paste it to the search toolbar of a private browsing window.

It would be really nice if Firefox provides me with a new context menu item for opening a new private browsing window and doing the search in that window just like how it does for opening a hyperlink ("Open Link in New Private Window").

Hi Koosha, thanks for the patch. While this would be a useful feature for some users, I don't think the extra UI would be valuable for the majority of our users. And every unused item is an extra point of confusion, so we're always reluctant to add extra options, even in menus.

This feature is a perfect example for a simple add-on. I suggest you create with this code an add-on for yourself and publish it too if you want.
