    I just downloaded Firefox 3 RC 2 but don't see any feature like "Private Browsing" in Safari. I thought I read a while back that Firefox 3 would have this feature built in. The Stealther add-on also does not work yet with the new version. Is there any functionality like this yet for Firefox 3 and if so how do I enable it? Thanks.

    When your in private browsing, nothing is saved and stored, thus nothing can be found.

    oh, then go ahead and check them all.

    PS. if you want to preserve the old data, just ask firefox to ignore the certain sessions, you should wait for this extension http://www.gness.com/distrust/ author said he is working on a firefox 3 compatible version.

    Mozilla is working on this too, but won't make into firefox 3.

    That's not really the same thing at all.

    i noticed, so I amended my post.

    EDIT, I just checked stealther is compatible with 3.0pre. which means its compatible with 3.0 as well.

    You can wait for it to "officially" support 3.0, or you can just disable compatibility check in your fx3 and install it right now.

    1. type "about:config" in url bar and press enter
    2. right click anywhere in the browser window and choose "new->Boolean"
    3. fill in extensions.checkCompatibility as the name
    4. pick "false" as value
    5. restart firefox
    6. goto the addons website of Mozilla, find stealther, and install it.

    The Stealthier Firefox plug-in does this (for hiding all your porn surfing).
