This is a known issue that Mozilla seems unwilling to fix. It is due to the popup being unable to communicate with the background page during private mode. Mozilla claims that inter-window communication should not be allowed in private mode (seems to be in Chrome and others?). This is a pretty fundamental architectural decision that the bitwarden app uses (mostly because it is the encouraged way to build complex web extensions).

I don't have a possible for the time being.

One way to bypass this is to use the right click context menu to fill in logins.

Dashlane, Lastpass, RoboForm, and virtually every other password plugin function in Private windows. Any idea what they use?
