    hey guys. I like privacy and use firefox so my settings are set at "Always use private browsing mode". My issue is that every time i open firefox it does not remember any of my passwords or site settings, which is how its supposed to be. but there are some sites i want it to remember. for example my home page (google). every time i open firefox, goodle keeps asking me if i want it to be my home page. is there a way to click yes and have it save that setting? even if i click save as the main page it asks every time. please let me know if there is a way or fix. see screenshot below...

    that is not an issue, it is the way the private browsing works. it wont be private if it works like a normal way - it will not remember any personal information, no temp or cache either, so you cannot use "safe my passwords" in a private mode. however, you can use bookmarks.

    private browsing isnt same as an anonymous surfing, it is only not saving your browsing history to the computer you are using.
