Private Browsing Mode Guide

Firefox Private Browsing Mode Help and FAQ

Want to increase your privacy on your PC?  With the release of Firefox 3.5, our favorite browser now has a Private Browsing mode.  Usually your browser remembers the web sites you have visited, your user names and passwords, your browsing history and more.  However, with this newest addition to the Firefox 3.5 feature list, you can now go incognito on the Internet.

I am sure that with Firefox 4 being right around the corner, many of these will be changing in the near future.  Have any other support related topics you’d like to see me cover in detail here? Let me know in the comments – and I’d be happy to help get you at least pointed in the right direction.
