1. Open the Firefox Menu

3. Clear Recent History

Choose “Clear Recent History…” You’ll see some options and a list of your recent browsing history.

4. Select Data to Clear

Check the boxes next to the types of data you want to remove from Firefox. If there’s something you don’t want to delete, make sure it’s unchecked. Also, pick how far back in time you want to erase data.

5. Time Range

You can delete all your history or just parts of it, like the last hour of browsing. Click to select the time frame for clearing your history.

Types of History and Data

Here’s what you can choose to clear:

  • Browsing & Download History: The sites you’ve visited and files you’ve downloaded.
  • Cookies: Small bits of info stored by websites to remember you.
  • Active Logins: If you’re logged into sites, clearing this will sign you out.
  • Cache: Temporary files saved to speed up website loading.
  • Form & Search History: What you’ve entered in forms and search bars.
  • Site Preferences: Custom settings for sites, like webcam permissions.
  • Offline Website Data: Info that lets you use some sites without the internet. Clearing this means those sites won’t work offline until you visit them again.

6. Clear the Data

Hit the “Clear Now” button after you’ve made your choices, and Firefox will get rid of the selected data.

And that’s it! You’ve cleaned up your browsing data in Firefox.
