Incognito This Tab is a helpful extension for the Mozilla Firefox browser. It enables users to quickly open the current tab URL in the incognito mode (called Private Browsing mode in Firefox), and removes it from the browsing history. Install it from the Mozilla add-ons gallery.
How To Use
Once you have installed it successfully, you would notice its icon on the toolbar, as shown in the following screenshot. Click on this icon to open the current web page in an incognito window.
Important: To use this extension, you need to grant it the “Run in Private Windows” permission. Follow these steps to grant this necessary permission to the Incognito This Tab extension. Without this permission, this extension wouldn’t work at all.
By default, this extension performs two tasks: closes the current tab after opening it in the incognito mode, and removes it from your browsing history. But you can change the default behavior, and set the extension to not close the current tab or not remove it from the history. This can be done by following the steps described in this article.
Keyboard Command & Context Menu Option
This extension also offers a keyboard command: Alt + I, which is much faster than using the toolbar button. If this command is not working for you, or you want to change it, follow this tutorial.
Moreover, you can also use the context menu (right-click menu) option to use this extension. Make a right-click anywhere on a web page, and select the option “Incognito This Tab” as shown in the screenshot below:
