A simple and useful tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without this add-on, if one wonts to set your browser on private, you'll need to open a new window. But with this simple add-on, one can open just a tab and navigate nice and easy without any problems. PrivateTab is, in my opinion one of the must-haves of any Firefox user. In fact, I am surprised that it is not implemented by default in the browser.

Undo close tab doesn't work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Undo close tab doesn't work as it works in 'Default New Private Window' of Firefox. I think each 'Private Tab' is a 'New Private Window' in itself. Anyway the undo tab history can be mantain until atleast one 'Private Tab' is open like sharing memory, info between different tabs open with 'Private Tab'?

Thanks and idea Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much for writing this add-on.

I gave it four stars only because it could use a configuration panel for changing or deleting hotkeys. I'm one of those who prefers no hotkeys, but there are other people who need to change the hotkey combinations for accessibility. For me, editing the about:config is no big deal, but for others, it is, especially for accessibility's sake.Like other reviewers, I too would like to see an appearance change for private tabs, so while you're thinking about it, I used the userChrome.css to address the issue.

The relevant CSS I used is:.

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate],
.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate] .tab-content
{ background:#555 !important; color:#ddd !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate] .tab-close-button
{ /* this needs to change the default image as it's a bit dark with my colors */ }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate][selected],
.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate][selected] .tab-content
{ background:#777 !important; color:#fff !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate]:hover,
.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate]:hover .tab-content
{ background:#669 !important; color:#fff !important; }

I hope this helps, and others may find it useful. Thank you again for making this add-on.

Extremely useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is extremely useful for people who want to login to web sites such as Google with different user names, but don't want to have multiple windows open.

Works nicely, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As TVTropes would say, it is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.It needs a small marker on the tab and header bar that marks it as a private tab. It looks like the original tab, which is great and nice, but a bit too confusing for my tastes. I am still going to be using this.Mozilla needs to add this.

Every browser should implement this! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Most people don't bother using private browsing/incognito windows just because of how inconvenient they are. Private Tabs makes it so simple to access private browsing that sometimes I open links in private tabs by accident (out of habit, not by error!). This is private browsing implemented right!

Why this is not in Default FF ?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is what i think is must to have , indeed it should be a default in Firefox . The Best thing about this addon is easily customizable styles of tabs with userChrome.css and the brilliant/Simple API support which is very useful for me to create custom Firegestures scripts with ease .

Bcoz of this no need to open a new Window do check private Browsing. Thanks to developer for providing this addon.

Great addon !

Question/suggestion - can we in future have ability to open private tabs in a "backgound" private tab via the contextual menu? ie have the option "Open Link in Background Private Tab"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.5). 

By default Private Tab uses built-in browser.tabs.loadInBackground preference from about:config page.
Or you can change extensions.privateTab.loadInBackground to 1, see https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/blob/master/defaults/preferences/prefs.js#files

Also you can middle-click on "Open Link in New Private Tab" item to invert background/foreground behavior.

Shortcut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Infocatcher,

Both shortcuts (CTR+Alt+T and Ctr+Alt+R) are OK to me. But I think the Ctr+Alt+T would be the best choice. T like Toggle and Tab as you as noticed. Nice... :)

Thank you!

Good, but needs options Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There need to be options for how to change the text labels on private tabs. Perhaps even an option to use a special favicon.

REPLY: If I'm understanding you correctly, I'd just put them in anyways (change the userChrome.css yourself) and, if an extension messes it up, it messes it up. But I don't see why it wouldn't also mess up the blue underline.

Thanks for the workaround, anyways.

You can found some styles for userChrome.css/Stylish here:
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab#styles
(but currently I don't have style to change tab labels, only example for icon available)

It's very hard to implement customisable appearance in case of many tab-reletad extensions and themes (e.g. there is at least 4 built-in themes: for WIndows classic and Aero, for Linux and for Mac OS). Thats why only UserStyles available – some of them should be corrected for some themes.
