"Sync up" is broken if I close and reopen Firefox when 'Always use private browsing mode' is enabled #123
@bgx thanks for the detailed info, I've recreated this. Unfortunately it's not a straightforward fix.
Helpfully, someone realised that not triggering a startup event is not particularly helpful when your extension relies on it, and reported a bug to the Chrome devs... back in 2013. Those devs clearly didn't think it was important because they didn't even bother to respond to the bug report, and it's an issue that remains to this day. When Mozilla implemented the Web Extensions API they probably copied the same behaviour to be consistent with Chrome.
Anyways, I'm not sure what the best thing to do here is. I very much doubt Google or Mozilla will address this anytime in the foreseeable future so it's either xBrowserSync doesn't support private/incognito mode or I need to start hacking around events which could lead to more issues.
I'll give it some thought...
