Hi,

I am on v100 on iOS (iPad and iPhone). I noticed that in the Recently Visited list on a homepage I can see history from my private browsing included. It's really worrying as I don't see those items in the browsing history.

Regards,

Ben

Whichever. Doesn't matter. Firefox is indexing private mode browsing history. This is absurd.

I’m having this same problem!! I’m so upset, that if Mozilla doesn’t correct the issue ASAP, I will be start using a different browser & not come back. That’s really sad, because Firefox has been my default browser for the last 15+ years.

Also, since it’s showing recently visited sites that were accessed in private mode, why do you think any of us would actually post in a forum what those sites are?!!?? We used private mode, because we did not want them showing up in our browser history!!! It’s not a problem with the websites, it’s a problem with the new version of Firefox. FIX IT!!!

V101, still no way to clear recently visited from private browsing tabs. Embarrassing. Goodbye FF, my trust in you is lost.
