Title is descriptive enough. My suggestion:

  • Persistently dark themed private windows by default.
  • Option to toggle dark theme in private windows on and off in Themes setting and/or Privacy settings.

Black color of the Private Window, instead of purple

Purple color, has nothing to do with privacy, do it like black in other browsers!

I don't think it's a good idea because many people use dark theme by default, so this wouldn't be noticeable at all.

I think it'd be much smarter to make the private windows purple, which is the main theme colour of the Private Browsing icon. Here's a good example of realization (I even use it myself): https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/purple-private-windows/

I dislike it. The dark theme is ugly, I never use it. I was shocked to see the private windows in the new design and I'm fed up with having to find out how to disable the mess everytime there's an unsolicited user interface change.

And did you really do this for 8, in words: eight, kudos?  Glimpsing over the feedback thread mentioned above it seems the number of persons who dislike the change is massive. I thought you would have learned by the auto download debacle to have more meaningful and representative opinions before deciding on a change.

Yeah, it makes me sad how Mozilla sometimes borrows random features from Chrome just because "this is the way it made in Chrome".
