when I open a separate window and start private browsing my main window closes and I lose all of my app tabs

Posted

whenever I open a new window and do private browsing it closes my main window and I loose all of my app tabs. If this is functioning as designed then it is a flaw in the design.

Additional System Details

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

This started when...

It is designed that way. When you stop private browsing, all of your other tabs will come back.
