Like the title says. This banner popping up every time I open Safari in private browsing mode is annoying and unnecessary. Any way to stop it in Mojave?

put the cursor where the 'x' will appear; then open a private window, and click that x immediately. (sorry, this seems to be such a minor thing, but... perhaps someone here has an idea on how to remove the banner).

I realize this isn't helpful, but why do you need to get rid of that banner? It's not like you have to click the X to close it in order to use the window as you normally would.
