recoll’s plugin for firefox is great. the only problem is if one for once does not want the browsing to be tracked there is no chance to do this (as far as I know). my suggestion would be not to track any firefox tabs which have been opened in private browsing mode.

Hi.

I agree with you. The right place to open a ticket would be the plugin home tracker (it’s an independant project). I’ll do it. Meanwhile, the workaround is to disable the plugin while browsing privately, but this is certainly inconvenient.

Oops, short memory, this is supposedly fixed in the last version of the plugin: https://sourceforge.net/p/recollfirefox/tickets/1/

Can you confirm that this does not work ? Please specify your Firefox version, maybe something changed in the interface.

Ok, replying to myself: this used to work, and apparently stopped working when Firefox changed the way private browsing worked. Opening another ticket on the plugin tracker.

Yes, the method for detecting private browing mode has changed with Firefox 20. I’ll update the Recoll plugin when I am back in front of my Linux workstation next week. The details of the change are here: https://developer.mozilla.org/EN/docs/Supporting_per-window_private_browsing
