Private mode in Mozilla Firefox keeps your local browsing history private. But by default, Firefox disables extensions during private browsing to prevent them from leaking data. If you want to use a trusted extension while browsing privately, you can easily enable it. Here̵
First, open ‘Firefox’. In any window, click the “Firefox” menu button (three horizontal lines) and select “Add-ons” from the menu.
In a new tab called “Add-ons Manager” you will see a list of all Firefox extensions you have installed. Find the extension you want to use in private mode and click the ellipses button (three dots) next to it. Select ‘Manage’ from the menu that appears.
After clicking ‘Manage’, you will see more details about the extension on a special page. Scroll down and find the option “Run in private windows”. Click the radio button next to “Allow” to enable the extension in private browsing mode.
Warning: Any extension you enable during private browsing can access your browsing data, which means the extension can capture that data and potentially share it with a third party. Make sure you trust the extension before enabling this feature.
After that, go back to the last page and repeat these steps with any other extensions you may want to use in private mode. When you are done, close the “Add-ons Manager” tab.
The next time you open a private window in Firefox, the extensions you have enabled will work as you would expect them to.
If you ever need to disable an extension in private mode again, go back to the extension’s “Manage” page in the “Add-ons Manager” and select “Do not allow” next to the “Run in private windows” option. Good luck and have fun browsing!
