One of the best add-ons I have, and I only just installed it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just installed this add-on and after testing it, I can already tell it'll be my most-used add-on to date. I needed to watch my Amazon orders on two separate accounts, but that would either require logging out and back in to check each account, or to run a private window. Now I can have a tab for each without having to deal with the hassle of either option. Would hug the developer if possible.

Don't have any complain about this addon! Working properly in Firefox 31 & Pale Moon 24! Thank you!

Does not work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

So after FF 31, with latest private tab update, i cant get into PRIVATE MODE, so your addon is useless now.

I removed the addon, installed it again, but to no avail.

Firefox default private WINDOW works flawlessly.

This is most likely conflict with some another extension (like https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/110 or something similar).

So, please try on new Firefox profile (to ensure, that this is some conflict):

And please also provide information from about:support page.

Running FF 31.0 on OSX 10.9.4 with Private Tab 0.1.7.3

> However with ONLY 1 private tab open (and nothing else), firefox's memory usage really goes high in a ~ 1 hour. I have confirmed that there was no other addon causing this. Is there anything wrong with the addon or ?

Some special site?
I've tried on new empty Firefox profile for private about:newtab page and all works fine.
Also Private Tab doesn't use content-dependent handling, so this may be bug in Firefox itself. And what happens without Private Tab, if used built-in private window? Or even (if this is site-specific) what happens, if used normal tab?
Anyway, please report more details here: https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues

[Upd] And may be something useful in about:memory page.


> is it possible to have 2 or more INDEPENDENT private tabs open in a single FF window ?

Unfortunately no, Private Tab uses built-in private browsing implementation that adds only one separate "identity" for all private windows and tabs.

Simple and useful, nothing excessive.

Do you have any option to restore a closed private tab? I don't see it in the right click menu.

Unfortunately no, due to recent changes in Firefox "Session Restore" component.

and my reply here: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/private-tab/reviews/614440/

Very handful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of the most useful add-ons I've come across recently. It reduces the need of opening a new private window. I don't like to have more than one window opened. I mostly use this to log in to two Facebook or Google accounts at a time - one in a regular tab and one in a private tab. It has shortcut, toolbar button and context menu where necessary. Well done!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A great looking addon but it has an issue that is a deal breaker for me.

CTRL+SHIFT+T is unable to bring up a closed private tab, where as in a private window this can be done.

Edit: It is a shame there is no way around this. After reading the provided docs I can only hope the FF devs expose the required functionality again some day or provide decent private tabs in FF.

I've adjusted my rating to account for the situation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.2). 

See https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/146
Also see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=956826#c8 (and below).
So, now this is hardcoded inside Firefox "Session Restore" component with special handling only for private windows: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=961380

Great, but has minor visual glitches with Australis and CTR... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Замечательный аддон, давно пользуюсь. Про плюсы писать даже странно как-то - он делает то, для чего создан и делает это хорошо. До Аустралис-ового апгрейда всё было вообще прекрасно.

В FF29+, при использовании Classic Theme Restorer и вынесении кнопки на панель вкладок (перед обычной "новой вкладкой") возникают две бяки:
1) лишний разрыв (padding) между кнопками новых вкладок (обычной и приватной). Расчёт идёт на Аустралис, а там разрыв между иконками существенно больше.
2) замена иконки на обычный "плюс" - при выборе в настройках CTR белого цвета значков на панели.

Не уверен, что эти претензии по адресу, поскольку это конфликт аддонов, но выбивается по графике именно Ваша кнопка. Было бы круто это дело пофиксить.

EDIT: Ок, спасибо. Беты CTR пока не ставил - ждал релиза 1.2.2. Второй косяк в 1.2.1 не исправлен, если и в бетах нет - отпишусь автору CTR.

> 1) лишний разрыв (padding) между кнопками новых вкладок (обычной и приватной). Расчёт идёт на Аустралис, а там разрыв между иконками существенно больше.

Это уже исправлено в разрабатываемых версиях Classic Theme Restorer (1.2.2beta2 и новее):

> 2) замена иконки на обычный "плюс" - при выборе в настройках CTR белого цвета значков на панели.

У меня все нормально, как минимум, с Classic Theme Restorer 1.2.1 и 1.2.2beta*.
К тому же, заменяются иконки только у фиксированного набора кнопок, так что кнопку Private Tab эти стили затрагивать не должны.
В любом случае, если проблема все еще присутствует в последних версиях Classic Theme Restorer (нужно поменять еще какие-то настройки?), надо сообщить об этом автору.

Great work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic extension.Provides an easily recognisable display without unnecessary features. Perfect if you want encapsulate your Google account to increase privacy even more, without having an extra window opened.

I just wanted to open certain bookmarks in private windows and I can and I get private tabs free. The "private:" syntax is very cool.

Great Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really like new private: feature, I just edit some of my bookmarks to open it self in private tab without having to open private tab first and open bookmark after! Only thing that annoy me a little is that private bookmark shows blank favicon.

And since I put New Private Tab button in Australis hamburger menu, default icon is not matching Firefox icon style, so I have to manually download XPI and replace icon file with icon that look like default New Private Window icon. ;)

> Really like new private: feature
Oh, not so new, but was improved. :)

https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/private-tab/versions/0.1.5
> 0.1.4 (2013-08-19)
> + Implemented "private" protocol: now we can use special URLs to open private tabs from bookmarks or from command line (example: private:///#https://addons.mozilla.org/, may be disabled using extensions.privateTab.enablePrivateProtocol preference) (#89)


> Only thing that annoy me a little is that private bookmark shows blank favicon.
Hmm... should work fine with most pages with "/favicon.ico" favicons, like
https://www.google.com/
https://www.google.com/favicon.ico
Anyway, I'll try to improve this:

You can use userChrome.css or Stylish
http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css
https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/stylish/
to change icon, example:

/* Special icon for Australis menu */
#privateTab-toolbar-openNewPrivateTab[cui-areatype="menu-panel"] {
    list-style-image: url("chrome://privatetab/content/privacy-32.png") !important;
    filter: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/extensions.svg#greyscale") !important;
