When you click ctrl shift P, how do you stop it from displaying

"Private Browsing Firefox won't remember any history for this session. In a Private Browsing session, Firefox won't keep any browser history, search history, download history, web form history, cookies, or temporary internet files. However, files you download and bookmarks you make will be kept."

etc. etc., and instead, go straight to e.g. your normal home page?

Thanks

You can toggle the Boolean pref browser.privatebrowsing.dont_prompt_on_enter to true on the about:config page to disable the notification.

I checked and it's already on; therefore I think it stops the little "are you sure you want to turn on PB?" window from popping up. What I mean is, how do you change the default start/homepage *once in* PB?

You can't change that page AFAIK.
You will have to click the Home page button on the Navigation Toolbar if you want to see your home page.
