Why was Firefox View taken away in Private Browsing mode?

I thought that in Private browsing mode, using Tools > Settings > Privacy & Security > Clear Data > Clear > Clear Now cleaned out everything in mid-session. It turns out that's not true, for example, using Firefox View I found that the list of Recently closed tabs in three-bar menu > History > Recently closed tabs was NOT cleared. The only way to see that was with Firefox View, which you could then use to delete items from the list.

With the new version of Firefox (119.0) Firefox View has been removed from Private browsing mode entirely. Thus not only is it impossible to see if the recently closed tabs list has been cleared, but it's impossible to clear the list even if you could see it. That leaves the only way to be (fairly) sure things are cleared out during a Private browsing session is to close the browser entirely, which is an annoying pain.

Why was that feature removed? How can I tell if the recently closed tabs have been cleared without it?

Thanks.

I trust this message finds you well. I am currently using Mozilla Firefox as my preferred web browser and I'm interested in ensuring that I have the latest version installed for optimal performance and security.

Could you provide a step-by-step guide on how to update Mozilla Firefox to the latest version? I'm curious about the frequency of updates and whether the process varies for different operating systems I'm using windows.

Additionally, I'd like to understand if there are any precautions I should take before initiating the update, such as saving bookmarks or ensuring compatibility with installed extensions.

Furthermore, are there any notable features or improvements in the latest version that I should be aware of? I want to make the most of the browser's capabilities and stay informed about any enhancements.

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I appreciate your expertise in guiding me through the Firefox update process.

Best regards,

We have a number of websites that are accessible with a client certificate.

We have a user where with one of the websites, Firefox point blank refuses to ask for or supply the end user's client certificate. With no client certificate, they are not allowed access.

Other websites requiring the same client certificate from this user work fine.

We suspect the end user pressed cancel on the "select your client certificate" popup, but we can't be sure.

How is it possible to completely reset the remembered state of a website, so that Firefox forgets any past interactions, and will ask to choose the client certificate again from scratch?

Hello,

I am unable to remember my Firefox account password after re imaging my computer. Fortunately, I did create and save my recovery keys.

I've reviewed the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-your-firefox-account-password-recovery-keys

However, when I click the pass reset link in the email as dictated in step 2 under the 'Reset your password with your recovery keys' section, I do not see any fields to enter my recovery key as highlighted in step 3. I haven't taken this step yet because I do not want to lose my password and bookmark information associated to my account.

Can you please confirm how to utilize my recovery codes?

Thank you for your time.

I am constantly getting emails cut off that do not get cut on friends programs. I keep getting these damn "secure connection" crap in the middle of a program that I am interested in. I pisses me off that cannot watch something that came from a friend that they are able to watch without the cutoff. Either quit cutting me off or I will cut moz://a off and go to another carrier. I have reached the end of my frustration!!!

Hi I am on Linux using Firefox-esr 91.5.0 and suddenly it started to show me that message on settings page. I have no Antivirus or anything. Were the problem comes from? On help/about page there's nothing mentioning the update restriction, neither when I click on the message. But it shows me a couple of different settings. Another thing that I've found so far is the setting "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" is unchecked AND disabled. I'm so worried about the issue, appreciate your help.
