in Freeware

At present, all popular browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari supports private browsing which doesn’t save your browsing history including cookies, temporary files search history, browser history. Private browsing mode used most generally by users to visit porn sites and some others use it intelligently for day-to- day browsing to protect their privacy, if you’re a parent worried about your kids might be watching porn or social networking sites in private browsing mode which you not able to monitor from their web browsing history and want to get rid of  private browsing mode from browsers which browsers doesn’t provide there is a freeware portable tool called Incognito Gone which completely removes private browsing functionality from Chrome, IE, Safari, but removes the option only from Firefox.

Disable Private Browsing in Browsers with Incognito Gone

Incognito Gone is a portable tool, all you need to do is: download the program zip  file, extract its contents to a folder and run IncognitoGone executable. This app supports private browsing supported browsers and shows active disable buttons for them, disable button is greyed out for the browsers not installed on your Computer.

Click on disable button opposite to particular browser name which shows a warning that -“disabling is permanent. Are you sure you want to disable private browsing? – click “Yes” to  proceed. As you warned its disabling is permanent, so think twice before using this program and its recommended to  create a restore point if you plan to get that feature again, so that you don’t need to reinstall the browser again.

However Incognito Gone fails to completely remove this functionality from Firefox, instead it removes option only where you can still access to private browsing with a shortcut Ctrl +Shift+ P  in Firefox.

I don’t understand, if it can disable Incognito why can’t it re-enable it by reverting back the changes? What change does it make to disable them anyway?

I agree with you there should be an option to re-enable again and incognito Gone developer not disclosed what it does behind the scenes.

tried this and it does work for firefox by removing it from the tools menu until you unckeck menu bar and compress the menus all over tho the left side , which most users do…therefore will still see the private browsing option. Please fix asap where this one disappears too
