I've been using Firefox on mobile for years now and it for whatever reason it doesn't allow you to screenshot when on a private tab. I would use normal tabs but I forget to close them.

I've been forced to open links with Chrome countless times because of this issue and I'm tempted to just switch to it permanently.

If you really want that feature in the app then please make it optional.


Apparently it is an option, it was just difficult for me to find and the developer eho replied didn't know it was an option either

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

Strollin' around

If I am not wrong if you go to settings, private browsing, there is an option to allow screenshots in incognito tabs. Please, correct me if I am wrong or if I misunderstood something.

 You have this option in firefox nightly android. I don't know about stable, beta or iPhone.

This feature is already there, isn't it?screen-20230324-165756.gif

Or are you not using Android?

I posted a review on the app store and a "developer" replied and told me to add it as a suggestion and linked me this forum.

They obviously had no idea it was a feature either lmao

Just checked the option and it works great.

Thanks everyone
