When I click on my Firefox, a purple page with a search box and underneath says

"Private window: Firefox clears your search and browsing history when you close all private windows. This doesn’t make you anonymous. Learn more "

What I normally would get is a page with all of my saved sites and pocket articles underneath.

I want this page back but can't get rid of the purple page.

Also, I tried to take a screen shot of the page but my screen shot icon is faded.

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode
