Is this punishment for doing an update?

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

Refreshed Firefox on my computer after getting a message that it was performing slowly. Now I am unable to open private browsing.

If I type in about:privatebrowsing then I get the private browsing screen however if I type anything in to that screen to search for it reverts to normal browsing.

I’m a silver surfer so not the most technically minded but does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get private browsing back. Have used Firefox for quite a long time with no issues before this so don’t really want to change to a different browser.

Can confirm using Windows 7.

Thanking you in anticipation.

I've had Fireforx update to the latest version (91.0) on 64 bit Win10. I also have had the same update on another computer running Win8.1. Both exhibit the same issue. I try to avoid committing to cookie consents and so use a private window for these sites. This should delete trackers on leaving the site. The odd behaviour since updating Firefox is it now disables all links on a page after accepting cookies when in a private window. Oddly the same site displays OK in a normal window. It appears only one site is affected in Firefox but this is not the case with this same site in other browsers such as Chrome, Edge, and Brave. The site is reputable and is a UK regional newspaper site of a large publicly quoted publisher. It does not appear to be their side that is the problem and I cannot understand the issue in Firefox. Anyone any ideas?

I use Firefox in private browsing by default. However, that means that I always have to login to any website, which can be a pain.

I was wondering if there is some middle ground. For example, if I could whitelist cookies from a specific domain to persist across private mode sessions or to be imported from non-private browsing. I am aware that I could be tracked by those domains, but that is a compromise I'm happy with.

It is normal that even with the updated core firefox consumes 2 times more power than chrome?

As an experiment, I opened both browsers (firefox 67.0 and chrome 74.0.3729.169) in incognito mode. All add-ons were disabled. Went to the same page with the video and started playback at the same time. Both Windows were of equal size and worked the same period of time (about 8 hours). Based on the results, firefox consumed almost 2 times more energy, and therefore consumed significantly more resources. Is this normal, or is there some way to fix it?
