Can you make Firefox forget about you visiting one website, without clearing out the rest of your saved browser history? Yes, you can – and it is fairly simple to do. This is one great Firefox feature that most do not know about it – so this is why I share it with you today.
Your browsing history in Firefox can very easily be cleared automatically. This can save you a lot of time, because there are a lot of things that it grabs and keeps that you might not need for it to. So, this is a very quick and easy guide to get this done within Firefox.
Clearing your Firefox history is a pretty easy thing to do, but just in case you have not ever done it – here is a quick crash course on how you can get this done. Why would you want to make sure you clear your browser history? Well, it comes in handy to make sure you are seeing the most recent version of any webpage you frequently visit. Also, having too much information saved in the browser can slow it down.
Firefox saves a lot of different information, but when it comes to cleaning your browser history up – how do you know what to keep and what to save? I figured I would take a minute or two to go through each thing that is saved in your Firefox history so you’ll know what exactly you are saving.
Having problems with something working on one website you want to visit? Firefox allows you to clear the history for one specific website very easily. It could be that temporary data or cookies for that website is causing you problems. Here is how you can clear the history for that website.
Website cookies are things that most people don’t worry about. However, it is important to know what they are used for and how you can control what information they store about out. Cookies are small files stored on your computer (placed there by websites) so that they can remember certain settings or statuses. By default, cookies are enabled in Firefox.
Firefox’s history features have always been a little lacking if you need to do any real heavy duty searching for something you browsed through before. One add-on from Mozilla Labs that is looking to change that is RecallMonkey. It gives you more powerful searching options when it comes to browsing through the Firefox browser history.
Some people have been emailing me and letting me know they miss the drop down history list that used to be by the back/forward buttons in Firefox 3.6. If you check out the browser interface of Firefox 4 – it appears this feature was stripped away. Was it really?
Ever needed to search through, correct or delete the entries that are saved to the form history inside of Firefox? With Firefox alone, this can not be done. If you download the add-on Form History Control – then you will be optimizing your saved form history in no time at all.
