Firefox add-on to always open specific websites in private windows.

This Firefox add-on provides the functionality to configure a whitelist of domain names. If while browsing a domain name matches a domain on the whitelist, this add-on will try to prevent Firefox from loading the website in a non-private window, open a new private window and load the website there.

Because of how webextension add-ons work, it is not always possible to prevent Firefox from loading a website. However, this add-on will always open a new private window and load the website there.

When opening the new private window, utm_campaign parameters are stripped from the URL to add a little more privacy.


Always Open Privately needs the permission to run in private windows. This setting may be set manually in the add-on manager in Firefox.
