How do I get Domain Guessing to work in private windows? The address bar automatically adds 'www' and '.com' to URLS in regular windows and tabs but it does not do this in Private Browsing Windows. Is there a setting I'm missing or is it even possible in Private Browsing mode?

Chosen solution

You may have to force this by using "Ctrl+Enter" in stead of just pressing enter.

I get a full domain in a private window. You could try altering a preference. In a new tab, enter about:config in the urlbar and change this preference to false: browser.urlbar.trimURLs
