Extension won't load in Firefox Private Browsing mode

The bitwarden browser extension does not function in Firefox Private Browsing mode. You will see a blank screen when opening the popup window in Private Browsing mode. This is a known issue specific only to Firefox. We have discussed the problem with Mozilla, however, they seem unwilling to fix it.

As a workaround, if you are looking to auto-fill a login while in Firefox Private Browsing you can use the right-click context menu:

  1. Navigate to the website’s login page in Firefox Private Browsing.
  2. Right click the page. A context menu will appear.
  3. Select bitwarden -> Auto-fill -> [your login].

Alternatively, you can also copy/paste your login credentials by accessing your vault from the regular, non-private browsing mode.
