Why was Firefox View taken away in Private Browsing mode?

I thought that in Private browsing mode, using Tools > Settings > Privacy & Security > Clear Data > Clear > Clear Now cleaned out everything in mid-session. It turns out that's not true, for example, using Firefox View I found that the list of Recently closed tabs in three-bar menu > History > Recently closed tabs was NOT cleared. The only way to see that was with Firefox View, which you could then use to delete items from the list.

With the new version of Firefox (119.0) Firefox View has been removed from Private browsing mode entirely. Thus not only is it impossible to see if the recently closed tabs list has been cleared, but it's impossible to clear the list even if you could see it. That leaves the only way to be (fairly) sure things are cleared out during a Private browsing session is to close the browser entirely, which is an annoying pain.

Why was that feature removed? How can I tell if the recently closed tabs have been cleared without it?

Thanks.

Greetings, for some reason lately over the last couple weeks I have noticed that when I open a link to a site that I've had in my bookmarks for years it now opens that link or that page and then within a couple seconds another tab will open for advertisement or possibly even the duplication of the originally called upon link in the previous tab. I would like to stop these additional tabs from opening automatically without my request.

thanks in advance,

I'm on Firefox Developer Edition 119.0b9 (32-bit) and Windows 11 Pro 22H2 but I've been experiencing this problem a lot longer ago even before upgrading to Windows 11. The first thing I open in my computer is Firefox, it gets the window itself quickly but the page stays blank with the gray loading dot going right and left for nearly 10 minutes before the page loads and Firefox works normally. I don't experience any issues while browsing the internet after that long loading but it's really annoying especially when I'm in a hurry and I don't have 10 minutes to stare at a blank page.

I switched to Firefox DE because I wasn't able to install 3rd party extensions. Just now, my middle click isn't working. I can't use the middle click to open/close tabs and to open links in a new tab. I checked my settings, tried a new profile, nothing works except in normal Firefox, the middle mouse does work, but I don't want to switch to that. My middle click also works in Edge and other apps, but please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank you.


PS. Please add biometrics to Firefox, like how Google did with Chrome.

How do I make it so that firefox automatically show the download panel or download button (either way is fine) AND automatically hides the button (not just panel) when the downloaded file is opened? (perhaps a setting to automatically clear the history?)

I tried searching around but couldn't find a solution for automatically hiding the button. There used to be a config option to automatically delete download history. but I can't find it anymore (I'm on firefox 119)

Thanks for the help.

I'm trying to reset my Firefox account password. I know my password is correct, because I just signed into my Firefox account with it.

Every time I try to change the password however, it tells me my old password is incorrect. I know it's not incorrect because as stated, I just signed into my account with it.

Not sure exactly how to fix this one, any suggestions welcome.

Middle Mouse clicking on links anywhere else works as it should, it only do it on twitter for some reasons. Shift middle mouse doesn't work either

But clicking on an IMAGE on twitter does work normally.

My Firefox (just updated to latest version) will not show videos from Ring.com. This has been going on for over a month and spans several version releases. However, I can get other browsers (Safari, Chrome, Vivaldi) to view the videos. (I am using a Mac, latest operating system.) I have just been trying to view a video from my Ring account for the last 10 minutes and it will not load and show.

Can you help?

I have contacted Traveler's Insurance Tech Help and they said the problem of looping back on the signin page happened with the latest update from FireFox.

They informed me that they have been trying to find the problem BUT it would seem that they would contact FireFox RATHER than suggesting that EDGE, GOOGLE or other browsers be used.

I can signin on EDGE, however I prefer to FireFox...

Here's hoping you can find the solution....

Let me know if you need me to help....
