Firefox is known for its resolve to offer a Google Chrome alternative that offers reliable privacy solutions as compared to the data-hungry browser. Time and again, Mozilla has advertised its browser as one of the security-focused browsers.
However, a major privacy feature is missing from Firefox which was included in Google Chrome, Edge and Opera a long time ago. Whenever a user turns on the incognito mode in a browser to stop its history from getting recorded, most browsers disable the extensions to stop companies from snooping on your browsing history.
The feature was unavailable in Firefox and was a major security flaw as any third-party extension could track you despite the incognito mode. A bug report by Mozilla shows that Mozilla is working to address the issue in its future updates.
However, it doesn’t make any sense to block all the extensions as not all add-ons can access your browsing history.
We do not have any idea about when this feature will be added but we can expect Mozilla to roll out an update with it. It is also possible that the feature to disable extensions in private browsing mode could be rolled out in the upcoming Firefox 65 version.
