    Lightbulb Open in default Private Mode - FireFox/IE8

    Well you can always start Private mode by goint to Tools > Start Private Browsing or by simply pressing CTRL + SHIFT + P shortcut key. But for users who always want to surf in Private Mode (What is Private Mode?) here is a simple trick that will open Firefox in private mode by default.

    Just follow the below steps to make Private Mode as default Mode in your Firefox.

    1. Start Firefox and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.
    2. Now press the Iíll be careful, I Promise button on the Warning page
    3. Now you will be presented with a lot of settings and configuration
    4. In the filter box type autostart
    5. Now right click on browser.privatebrowsing.autostart setting and click Toggle. Now its default value will be changed from false to true.
    6. Thatís it! Now restart Firefox to see changes.


    To make IE open in default InPrivate Mode create a shortcut on desktop by using following steps

    Right Click on Desktop
    Select New > Shortcut
    In Location tab type
    "%systemdrive%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -private
    Give your shortcut a name say InPrivate.

    For no addon mode use
    "%systemdrive%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff


    For fill screen/Kiosk mode use
    "%systemdrive%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -k


    For starting with no homepage use
    "%systemdrive%\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome
