How to reproduce: While private window is open, close Firefox regular window.

Issue: all existing tabs will be lost (Open previous windows and tabs is checked). Hope this got fixed soon.

Expected behavior: All tabs are kept when closing regular window with private window opened

Current workaround: In new window, restore the previous tabs from "History" > "Recently Closed Tabs"

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar, especially if you have multiple windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.
