Why don't Personas work after setting 'Never remember history'?

Posted

I recently downloaded an animated lightweight theme for Firefox on my Windows PC, but after I checked 'Never remember history'(in Options>Privacy) it doesn't show me the theme. If I uncheck it, I can see the theme again. While the option was checked, I clicked in the Add-ons > Appearance and the theme was enabled.

hello, it is a known issue that light-weight themes are currently not shown when firefox is set to never remember history (a.k.a. always run in private browsing mode). this will be corrected in the upcoming firefox 21 which is going to be released tomorrow.
