Firefox 20 Comes with Per-Window Private Browsing
Article by George Norman
On 03 Apr 2013
Mozilla updated its Firefox web browser to version 20 and, among other things, added per-window Private Browsing functionality.

Firefox version 20 has just been rolled out to Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android users. Chief among the new features Firefox 20 has to offer is one that gives you more control over your privacy. Until now, if you wanted to surf the web anonymously with Private Browsing, you had to interrupt your session. With the recently released Firefox 20, you no longer have to interrupt your browsing session. You can use Private Browsing uninterrupted – and on top of that, you can use Private Browsing on a per tab basis.

Firefox includes a new enhancement to private browsing that allows you to open a new private browsing window without closing or changing your current browsing session,” said Mozilla. “Firefox for Android allows you to open a new private browsing tab during your current browsing session, allowing you to switch between private and standard tabs within the same browsing session.

Update your browser to the latest release and you will see a new arrow button in the upper right hand corner. This is the new Downloads Manager introduced by Mozilla with Firefox 20. It lets you more easily monitor downloads and lets you quickly access downloaded files. Check out the images and the video below.
