Is there a Firefox addon that will let me open a tab as a private tab? Otherwise I have to connect the complete Firefox in the Privacy mode.

When i open pages like amazon i sometimes want to use them anonymized because of the cookie tracking of my searches!

Maybe a cookie-management addon would suffice? – Bobby Nov 10 '10 at 8:26

The best alternative is to use Private Browsing Window addon. It starts a new Firefox instance with a new profile.

I fear this is not feasible in Firefox right now. Unfortunately the same problem applies to Tor.

You could try to file a bug to request it, though.

The Private Tab extension adds a per-tab private browsing mode. It only works with Firefox 20+ due to it utilizing an API that doesn't exist in older versions.
