I really like this addon, used to use it on Opera v12 or below. Anyway I got an issue when using it with Tab Mix Plus. It doesn't add closed tab list even when on Private Window which usually do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.1.1-signed).

Thanks for report, will be fixed in the next release:
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/145

P.S. This is issue with built-in Firefox session mechanism, so the same happens without Tab Mix Plus.

A little issue... maybe. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really good add-on, but i'm not sure if this is a bug or not:

when I was using the firefox's speed dial, I opened a private tab by either keyboard shortcut or the buton and a normal tab the same (shortcut or new tab buton), no matter if I was on a private or normal tab, now this is what i want from this addon.

but then I changed my speed dial to superstart, a really nice and easy to use addon, but now if i'm in a private tab and try to open a normal tab, by either shortcut or new tab buton, a private tab is opened instead, i have to use cntrl+ALT+T or in the context menu of the tab select private tab to reverse it to a normal tab, I find this a little annoying and I don't want to go back to firefox's speed dial.

some help?

This is conflict with "preloading" feature in Super Start 7.0+.
Workaround:
extensions.superstart.page.preload = false (to disable preloading)
browser.newtab.url = "about:superstart" (to correctly detect as empty)

Will be (hopefully) fixed soon, you may track https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/142 to see progress.

Custom shortcuts Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon works prerfectly but the option to change the shortcuts would be very helpful, the one confilcting is duplicate tab (Ctrl+Alt+T) with switch to private tab.
Also (Ctrl+Alt+P) in FF29 is opening a new normal tab,
which will be ofcourse fixed soon,

You can modify extensions.privateTab.key.* preferences on about:config page, see
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/blob/0.1.7.1/defaults/preferences/prefs.js#L9-L16

Strange, works fine for me with Tab Mix Plus.
But this may be caused by some another extension, see
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/tree/0.1.7.1#known-issues
=> https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/110

This should be a built in feature! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly. Even has a shortcut (ctrl+alt+P) to quickly open tabs.

This feature must be built-in!

Also what about opening private tab with middle-click on newtab button?

Just perfect.
I would love if there is a button at the 'New tab' page (about:newtab) to convert it to a Private tab.
I really like keyboards shortcuts but I'm using Ubuntu and I use Ctrl+Alt+T to open my terminal. It will be nice if the user could set the hotkeys.
I would love to see either of the both features.

want to [shift]+[mmb] click a link from non private tab and have it open a private tab... can u integrate wit tab mix plus and offer the option

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.1-signed). 

This is most easily to do from Tab Mix Plus (or other click-related extension) side...
Because I don't like to make all-in-one extension, but provide API for other extensions:
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab#api-functions
So, please try to contact with Tab Mix Plus developers.

FEATURE REQUEST Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would like to request the ability for the user to enter a list of domains, and from then on have ANY link or bookmark to a domain on the list, come up in a private tab.

In other words, I want to be able to say "make this domain ALWAYS load in a private tab, please". :)

Thanks for your consideration... and for having created this awesome, much-needed add-on in the first place... :)

See https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/issues/100
But state is still the same: I don't know, how to implement this (may be this is impossible).

Adds an entry to the context menu for links to open them in a private tab. Tabs can be toggled between private mode and not. Seamlessly integrates into the browser.

This addon adds what should be a default feature in Firefox.

Still works for me, but only for some archives. :(

I don't know, what is the reason, sorry.

Is it possible to have Private Tab open a background tab? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Lovely extension, one query: Is there a way to open several links on a page in private tabs without being immediately taken to each one? I'd like to stay on the page while I open several links, then browse to those I've selected.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.1-signed). 

By default Private Tab respects browser behavior: browser.tabs.loadInBackground (Options – Tabs – When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately) or browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground (for bookmarks) from about:config page.
Or you can change extensions.privateTab.loadInBackground, see
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab/blob/0.1.7/defaults/preferences/prefs.js

Works well, but needs an options menu. In particular, it places itself in menus like the main menu and right-click menus that leave you no option to remove them. You also cannot customize the shortcut key.

> In particular, it places itself in menus like the main menu and right-click menus that leave you no option to remove them.

You can hide them using userChrome.css (or Stylish extension), see
https://github.com/Infocatcher/Private_Tab#styles
and https://github.com/Infocatcher/UserStyles/tree/master/Private_Tab_hide_items


> You also cannot customize the shortcut key.

please mozilla integrate it on firefox.
this is a fantastic addon, this function must be integrated on the browser.
a new private windows is inconvenient, much better a new private tab
