I don't wish to have address predictions based on past browsing show up in Private Browsing -- defeats the purpose of Private Browsing.

Chosen solution

Private browsing only prevents the browsing you do in that session from being saved, not previous, non-private browsing. You can set Firefox to not use URL suggestions, or clear your history entirely. But it is behaving as expected.

Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox

Remove websites from the address bar suggestions
