What do you mean by "a secure window"? Are you referring to a Private Browsing window?

If so, you can right click on the link and select Open Link in New Private Window.

Hope this helps.

hi wesley

yes i m referring to a private browsing window - but i cannot find the rightclick 'Open Link in New Private Window' - the only thing i can do is to copy the link, goto firefox, open a private browsing window, paste the link and go...

it would be better if ALL links from emails would automatically goto a private window

tnx

Does the option appear if you run Firefox in Safe Mode?

If not, do you see anything listed in the Active section of the about:policies page? Does the option appear on links available on other websites?

For example, does the option appear on this link?

Does the option appear if you [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode|run Firefox in Safe Mode]]? If not, do you see anything listed in the '''Active''' section of the <code>about:policies</code> page? Does the option appear on links available on other websites? For example, does the option appear on [https://www.mozilla.org/ this link]?

no to all of your questions above unfortunately

it would be awesome if firefox would have an option/setting where one can choose to start (after clicking a link) in private mode or standard mode instead of opening a private window when firefox is already open...

I think that you will have to drag the link to a Firefox Private Browsing mode window to make this work.

I don't know if this will work if you drag the link to a Firefox shortcut on the desktop that is set to open a private browsing mode tab/window in Firefox.
