How to open Mozilla Firefox in Private Browsing with Tracking Protection

  1. Click the "Open menu" button in the top right side of the browser window. It has the shape of three parallel lines.
  2. Click "New Private Window" (CTRL+SHIFT+P)


Version 56.x




Version 57.x



A new private window is opened with tracking protection. Firefox explains that when browsing in private mode, it will not keep your browsing history, search history, download history, web form history, cookies, or temporary internet files. However, the files you download and the bookmarks you make are saved.
