Google Chrome like private browsing mode in Firefox

Private browsing mode is of course a great privacy feature; in this mode no records of your web surfing session will be stored on the computer.

As in Google Chrome, you can also open both Private browsing mode and normal mode simultaneously in Firefox by installing an extension.

[You can stop private browsing window by clicking the 'Stop Private browsing' (see above screen-shot) ]

You can install the add-on from Mozilla add-on Gallery [via]
