On the add-ons screen, it says "Restart Firefox to complete your changes", so I click restart, but when the browser restarts it still says the same thing. No new add-ons can be installed or updated, or even removed because it keeps asking for it to be restarted. This only happened a few days ago as soon as I updated to the latest Firefox, but the problem remains if I try using the older browser version.

I was wondering why "Privacy Browsing" is only indicated when it is turned on for an individual session, and NOT when it is automatically started when Firefox starts. At times, I have forgotten that I am in the Privacy Browsing mode, so things I would like to retain (i.e. zoom settings) do not remain in place while going from page to page.

Perhaps this is only a matter of aesthetics, but it would also be helpful in knowing the particular mode your browser is using..

Thanks in advance for any useful suggestions/solutions.

I click "Clear Recent History," check all the boxes, select "Everything" from the drop down menu, and click "Clear Now" and my Firefox will delete my cookies, but it will not delete my browsing history. My browsing history stays. I click the history drop down menu on the top and it still has things I browsed just moments ago.
