I see the "Start Private Browsing" has gone from the Tools menu - now need to go to File and choose "New Private Window" instead. Think I prefered it on the Tools menu but no doubt I'll get used to it over time.

Are you running XP.

In windows 7 it's not in the file menu but in the actual firefox menu.

It's gone from options to file on both my W7 PC and on my XP one. The behaviour is also different in that it opens a new window and leaves the old one intact, previously you lost the old window until leaving private browsing when it was restored.

I don't use the Firefox menu so obviously don't get it there.

Yes, it's still there too but I preferred going to Tools and selecting Private Browsing and having the same window change to the PB mode then at the end you could switch back and it would reopen your previous windows.

Are you running XP.

Yeah sorry, I'm still behind the times and running XP.

I think I'll be quicker using the mouse! But I might try and remember that combination for future use.

I prefered it switching "modes" without the need for a new browser window - I don't think it starts a new instance of the browser though (what I mean is there's not a second firefox process running in the task manager). But I prefer the previous method - something else I'll need to get used to though.

Opening a new window with Firefox produces a new application but no new process, this is the same whether the window is private browsing or normal.

The old system was a little quicker but the new one allows both private browsing and standard at the same time, I'm not sure which I prefer.

I prefer the old method as after I start a new private window, that window is created in a new position. So as I like to have the window in a specific location on the desktop, I have to keep the original browser open until after I close the private session so it remembers the last position opened.

Yes it does allow you to run both a normal and private session at the same time, but I'm not sure I ever need to do that.

The only difference I can see is that 21 beta seems to max out my CPU when watching flash videos, so may go back to 20

Hi Marti S,

Running full screen 1080P with the latest beta was taking only 20% of my i7 CPU.

I wouldnt even attempt 1080P, my PC is rather old, only has a 256MB graphics card.

Hopefully by the time if comes to full release they might have made it more compatible with older PCs
