Limitations in private windows

While the browser extension will exhibit full functionality in Firefox private windows, there are a few limitations to take into account:

  • Autofill using the context menu and keyboard shortcuts require an unlocked vault in a non-Private window.

  • Your vault will lock every time the browser extension closes, unless you set vault timeout to Never. Alternatively, you can use the browser extension as a sidebar to bypass this limitation.

  • Unlock with PIN will work only if the Lock with master password on browser restart option is not selected.

  • The badge icon will not update to show vault state (locked or unlocked).

  • Account switching is not supported in Firefox private windows at this time.
