Feature implementation notes Implementation is under way by volunteers
Implementation is under way by volunteers and paid contributors working in their spare time. Some patches have landed on mozilla-central. The metabug for this work is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=pbngen with individual bugs filed for existing consumers of the global service. Please see this bug to get a sense of the remaining items.

Feature implementation plan https://wiki.mozilla.org/Per-window_Privat
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Per-window_Private_Browsing has a discussion of various consumers of the existing service and the ways they will be modified. Unresolved design issues: * API design for consumers that don't have access to a channel or docshell - duplicate relevant Add/RemoveFoo APIs with Add/RemovePrivateFoo? Something else? Resolved design issues: * Open a new private mode window from command line: <code>-private-window</code> Can't we use a temporary profile in a separate Firefox instance instead? * It's assumed that we want things like extensions, history, bookmarks, etc. from the user's profile to continue to exist in the private window. A separate profile won't provide these, so this is not a feasible quick and dirty solution.

Feature overview We want to move away from a global flag mo
We want to move away from a global flag model of PB being enabled to a per-window model more in line with other browsers. The implementation should support per-tab private browsing as an implementation detail, but that functionality will not be exposed by default.
