Hi Mozilla Firefox Team,

As my project is using indexDB, it doesn't load in Firefox Private Mode. Can you help me on how I can access & change "dom.indexedDB.privateBrowsing.enabled" config value from JavaScript code. Before there use to be a Preference API by Firefox, but now when I go to that link it displays 'page not found'

Hi thanks for replying,

Yes its in Desktop copy of Firefox Private(Incognito) Window. Website loading fails when indexDB comes into use in Private(Incognito) Mode. If there is any way to toggle value of dom.indexedDB.privateBrowsing.enabled config of Firefox Private Window via JavaScript code then it would be helpful.

Hello...Anyone have a solution for this issue?

This requires running privileged JavaScript code via the Browser Console, so you can't do this via JavaScript running in an extension or on a webpage if that is your intention.
