On OS X's Dock I can right click on Firefox's Icon and get 2 options: "new Window" and "New Private Window".

On Firefox Quantum, I get these options normally when I first open the application, but after having it open for some time, these options just disappear.

I work with multiple desktops and move the Firefox windows around if that helps.

The system info I attached above is when the options where still present on the context menu. I attach here the system info now that the options disappeared: https://justpaste.it/1drl5

I have this problem too on Firefox Quantum 60.0.1 (64-bit). I have noticed that if I open the "Bookmarks" and "Show all bookmarks", the option is still available. However, once the "Library" page showing all bookmarks is closed, the options disappear (reproducable).

Hi BeeKey,
You're replying to a thread that is over six months old. You should use https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new where volunteers can get more details about your setup.

Because this thread is so old and more people might start using it for their own questions, I'm going to lock it.
