In Firefox documentation it is claimed that while a user is in private browsing Cached Web Content, Offline Web Content or User Data will be saved. I am using Firefox beta 23. With 'do not track' and 'private browsing' enabled.

An examination of the file places.sqlite stored in my profile shows it is adding to the file the addresses of every website I visit. This information is not cleared when I close Firefox. When I have closed Firefox I have deleted the file but it reappears unchanged at each fresh machine start.

As I regularly update my versions of Firefox and the file is one carried over with each update the entries in places.sqlite also record my browsing history over a long period - all of it is there whether I had private browsing enabled or not.

How is this true private browsing when this file keeps a complete record of browsing history?

I had a nifty note taking program with a launch line in the Tools Tab of the browser ... I offered six separate pages to take notes ... I cannot remember the name of the program and when I updated the Mozilla Firefox Browser to the latest version about a week ago the line to launch that Note program in the Tools Tab was gone ... I cannot find my notes on those six pages and they were voluminous ... any ideas where the program went?

Hello, I have windows 8 configured to look closer to Vista/XP by using a quick-launch toolbar. I've noticed that whenever the Firefox Beta update occurs, the Firefox logo in the quick-launch icon disappears (changes to a blank white piece of paper). I'll need to right click, select properties, and change the icon. From there, it'll be fine again until the next update. This is most likely a windows 8 issue, but perhaps its related to the update process. Can anyone shed some light?

I've sorted my tabs into groups, but when I go to open a tab from a group I see tabs from every group jumbled together. They appear under their seperate groups when viewing the groups panel though. After restarting Firefox all the tabs are no longer displayed in their groups, they're all bunched together on the groups panel. I've checked my profiles folder and none of the .js files are set to read-only. Any idea what might be going on here?

I keep e-mails on my server until I have time to file them. about ten days ago several hundred of my e-mails disappeared, as well as some daily e-mails I receive stopped coming. I contacted what I thought was google repair. They charged me $400 and did not return my e-mails. Can you help me get them back. I use them for many purposes and am concerned that they would just disappear.
