After switching to beta of FF 20.0, the window title always shows "- (private browsing)". As I'm constantly in private browsing, is there any way to disable displaying that? Previous versions only showed the title of the site.

Firefox 20+ versions have Private Browsing mode per window and to indicate that you are in such a PB mode window that text is appended.
If you open a new window then it is a normal window unless you choose a new PB mode window.


The second part is not entirely correct. If FF is set to be in always in Private Browsing permanently (by checking the appropriate box in the Preferences), as in OP's settings, new windows are not normal, but private browsing too. In such situations the (Private Browsing) text that is added on the title window is redundant and there should be a way to disable it.

Yes, exactly. I have the same issue - always start in private browsing by default and don't want each window displaying I'm in private browsing. How can we disable this new feature that we don't want ?

Nightly Tester Tools allows the user to modify the Titlebar.
