why does the mask icon always show up in the browser window, and all new tabs are automatically private?

الحل المُختار

You get a purple PB mask at the right end of the Menu Bar (Linux: at the left end of the Tab bar) and "(private browsing)" appended to the Firefox title bar unless you are in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

You can use an extension to get Private Browsing mode support per tab.

thanks, i actually just figured it out!

I had opened a new private window unintentionally. then whenever i opened a new tab, it opened as private. because the interface changed today, i couldn't tell what was going on. that was the issue. when i opened a new window, it was normal.

thank you again for your help!
