Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful. Has everything I NEED.
How to get 5 stars: make the hotkey (ctrl + alt + t) customizable.
Would use it even if above is not implemented.
EDIT: "problem" solved by friendly devs.
thanks again devs

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.3.1-signed). 

Hotkey is already customizable through about:config page:

Great Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on works as it's suppose to. It's easy to use and great for browsing history privacy. :)

Works great, very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it's supposed to do, cleanly and flawlessly.

Quick question: would there be any possibility of adding an option to make the color of a private tab -- the tab itself, up there in the tab toolbar -- be different from the rest of the tabs? It would be very useful to be able to just glance at the tab toolbar and see if there were any private tabs open.

Edit: thanks for the pointer to the styles! They work like a charm in userChrome.css.

(not so good in Firefox 29+ with Australis, but not bad as a start point...)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Small, simple, no restart required and it does what it should. Very good :).

Only one thing: It doesn't work with e10s until now. I can't open links in a new tab or in a new private tab if this add-on is enabled.

great addon, i don't see why browsers don't implement it as a builtin feature (and only have such availability on the window level)

Awesome but lacks a button to the toolbar or similar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I was in need for, but I need a button or shortcut that is mouse friendly please, like in right click menu on the tabs bar perhaps.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.3.1-signed). 

Hmm... there is button for toolbar, just call "Customize…" from toobar context menu.

idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

İmposible add the shortcut open the link private mode (shift + mouse left click etc. )

Thanks for info Infocatcher

Oh, needed a lot of code to handle clicks, especially due to upcoming Electrolysis aka e10s:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Multiprocess_Firefox
Anyway, there is API for other extensions that already handle some clicks:

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 review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.3.1-signed). 

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

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.3.1-signed). 

> 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.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.3.1-signed). 

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

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.

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
