I don't want my child hiding things from me. How do I block or remove the Private Browsing functionality?

You wouldn't be able to do it as long as the user has access to Profile folder, lack of which makes Firefox not able to work - the user would be able to delete any data. Even prior to private browsing feature, history was clear-able in Tools - Clear recent history window.

To have more control, you can block some websites/ports in the router or firewall, the FoxFilter add-on can be helpful (but again, the users can simply un-install it).
