Is there a way to allow themes in private browsing mode in Windows 10 OS. The 8.1 allowed the themes to be installed in private browsing mode

Posted

Upgraded to Win 10. Using private browsing mode, I tried to upgrade my theme but mozilla will only apply theme in regular mode, not private browsing mode. Is there a way to add the theme to private browsing mode which i use constantly. Nicer then the basic background currently displayed

I just tested on Windows 7, and in Firefox 42, my lightweight themes do not apply to private windows, either. So I don't think it's a Windows 10 issue.

I see there's an extension to allow themes in private windows. That was first posted in 2013, so maybe this problem has existed for a while. ??

In the interest of science, I tried it and it worked in my 15 second test.
