When I would activate a private browsing window it would have the private button show and the window background would turn blue. Now when I activate a private browsing window just another start page appears. No indication of a private browsing page.

Hi  !

When Firefox is set to 'Never remember history' you won't see a purple mask at the top of each window, even though you are effectively in Private Browsing mode. In that case go to Options => Privacy' and set Firefox to 'Remember history'.

If that doesn't work : Press the Alt key, and in the upper left corner, click : View => Toolbars and uncheck : 'Menu Bar'.
