Hello, usually the private window was purple to indicate that it is a private window. Now when I open a private window it looks exactly the same as a standard one. Is this normal?

Not really. For me it's still purple with a Robin's mask icon.

When you use permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History) then you do not see a purple mask because all windows you open are PB mode windows. You only see the purple mask if you open Firefox in regular mode and open a New Private Window to differentiate the PB mode window from a regular window.
