I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

For some reason my browser occasionally jumps over to a private browsing tab and I may never realize Firefox has performed this action. I may continue with my research for any length of time when I may need to look at something other than my browser, say jump over to a Note or some other function not having to do with Firefox, when I return I find maybe an hour of research has automatically been closed and of course there is no record of that lost work. This function is really frustrating additionally it's tricky that a link to another site or page of information can cause the Firefox Browser to open the following tab in Private Mode, then automatically close when it becomes necessary to look at some other functions on my Android device, everything is wiped out gone lost no way to retrieve the info.

What ever happened to Lazarus, the app that always brought back lost work, private or otherwise? That was an excellent and very helpful tool. Is there some other way unknown to me where I can retrieve those closed private tabs, how do I stop the links from auto-opening privately, and I'd like to know how to stop private tabs from closing when I leave those tabs to focus on something other for a split second.

Please advise. Thank you.

My tabs keep crashing and every time I reopen Firefox I have to reclick all tabs, public and private. Last week, I had to delete the app because nothing worked. But since I reinstalled it, I have had to constantly reclick all tabs both public and private at least 5 times a day because it disappears.
