How to remove the browsing history data in Mozilla Firefox Tutorial



Similar to other popular web browsers, Firefox maintains an adequate amount of your past browsing history. The history data may be useful if you forget the address to an important website that you visited previously. On the other hand, if you value your privacy, it would be a good idea to remove your browsing history after using the browser. This tutorial will show you how to remove your Firefox browsing history data.



To remove your past browsing history in Mozilla Firefox, begin by:

  1. Opening Firefox and then clicking on the “History” drop down menu in the top of the web browser window. If your menu bar isn’t enable, you may enable it by following this guide.




















  1. Next, click on “Clear Recent History”.



















  1. Next, select what you need to delete and also select the amount of data that you want to remove.

If you want to keep your saved website passwords uncheck the “Active Logins” option.














  1. After you have made your selections, click on “Clear Now”.















  1. Give the application a few moments to remove the data.
