How do I enable plugins during Private Browsing sessions?

Posted

I sometimes use Private Browsing. However, I noticed that when Private Browsing is enabled, plugins are disabled. I assume this is because some of the plugins maintain personal data, so Firefox cannot guarantee that the plugins will not store personal data during the Private Browsing session.

Still, I want to enable plugins during Private Browsing and I accept the risks involved. But I have not yet figured out how to enable plugins during Private Browsing.

How do I do enable plugins during Private Browsing?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== since Private Browsing was built into Firefox

The disabling of plugins isn't a feature of Private Browsing, what indication do you have that something is disabled?

Or, are you talking about certain extensions or their features being disabled?? That shouldn't happen either, unless a particular extension uses or extends the features in Firefox that are disabled in Private Browsing mode. I imagine that an extension that deals with Passwords, any type of History (like Download List, Forms, or Search), visited pages (browsing history), the Cache, or Cookies isn't going to work as it would in the "normal browsing" mode.
