I would like to turn off private browsing for one tab or for one instance of firefox without turning it off all the time. Washington Post will not allow me to see content without subscription in private mode.

It is currently not possible to disable PB mode for a tab (or window) if you are in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

You would have to start Firefox with a separate profile that doesn't use PB mode. See "Creating a profile":
