If you do not like it, downgrade to version 19. And submit your suggestion to the Suggestion Box

No. You can't revert to the old Private Browsing mode behavior.

Current Firefox

Firefox 20 versions and later have switched to Private Browsing mode per Window and future versions will also support Private Browsing per tab (is already available in an extension).
