Let’s take a look at how to clear your browser history from Firefox 10.0 and cache. The Firefox Internet history keeps tabs on all of the websites and links you’ve visited using the Firefox browser. Separately, the Firefox cache transparently stores your Internet search history data so that future requests for that data can be initiated faster. When this data grows substantially, it can slow down your computer.
How to clear Firefox Recent History
- Open Firefox 10.0 Internet Browser.
- Locate the Internet menu bar on the top left of the Internet window. You should see tabs labeled: File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help.
- Click on the Tools tab.
- Using your mouse, navigate down and click on Clear Recent History. If you’d like to use the keyboard shortcut, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete.
- A window labeled Clear Recent History will pop up on you desktop. Next to the text Time range to clear there is a drop down menu. Click on it.
- There will be time range choices labeled Last Hour, Last Two Hours, Last Four Hours, Today, and Everything. Click on your time range. Note: Clicking Today will delete browser history since 12:00am that day. Clicking Everything will delete all of your Internet search history.
- Below Time range to clear is the text Details. Next to Details is a small drop down menu button.
- Here you’ll see the options Browsing & Download History, Form & Search History, Cookies, Cache, Active Logins, and Site Preferences. Some of these will already be selected. Make sure that Browsing & Download History, Form & Search History, and Cache are selected.
