Browsers, it has to be said, have problems keeping secrets and you may need to take action every once in a while to maintain yours. Perhaps you have been roaming around the dark corners of the web and do not wish to be found out! You know how it is. Leave an individual alone in a room and they are likely to start doing crazy things. Not that I would know, in any case. The thing to remember is that you should never do anything embarrassing using the internet while at work or somewhere public. So, how do you delete your browsing History in Firefox?
Remove browsing history from Firefox
If, like me, you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser, then the following is how to delete your browsing history;
- Open your Firefox browser.
- Click on “History.”
- Next, click on “Clear Recent History.”
- Choose the things that you would like to delete.
- Click on the “Clear Now,” button.
What should I delete?
Now, all the incriminating evidence will be wiped clean from your screen. There are some things that you need to know, however, about the items that are up for deletion.
- Browsing and Download History: This is probably what you wish to delete in the first place, so you should be safe here.
- Active logins: Now, this is interesting. Your computer keeps login details whenever you sign into one place or the other on the internet. This is useful in that you do not need to type in your username and password every time. You probably don’t want to delete active logins, though no harm will come from doing so.
- Cookies: Cookies are left on your machine by the websites that you visit. You can probably get away with deleting them.
- Form and search history: You will probably want to delete this if you are concerned about being anonymous. You don’t want people to see what you type into your computer when you are alone.
