Undo close tab in Private Browser mode no longer works!?

Posted

I'm using the Aurora build. The restore closed tab shortcut Ctrl-Shift-T no longer works in private browsing mode! This is very annoying since I cannot reopen accidentally closed tabs.

I believe this problem started after they implemented private browsing in a new window instead of closing the existing window.
