Want to have Firefox just clear out the un-important stuff when you start browsing? Now, this is highly based in my opinion – and I do have to say that one man’s un-important data might be another man’s stuff he can’t miss.
I’ll share with you though how I have my browser setup to clear some un-important data each time I close the browser.
Mitch’s Clear History When Firefox Closes Settings
Go to Tools, and then click on Options.
Next, go to the Privacy tab and select “Use custom settings for history” from the drop down menu.
Put a check mark in the box for, “Clear history when Firefox closes” and then click on the button labeled, Settings.
Make sure you add a check mark for only the following boxes:
- Browsing History
- Download History
- Forms & Search History
Then hit the button labeled, “OK” to continue. On the Options window, also click the button labeled, “OK” and you are all set.
This way I have Firefox setup to clear everything except for my saved passwords and login sessions that are enabled by cookies. Your setup might be different, and if it is – feel free to share in the comments.
