    If you don't want Firefox to remember your browsing history, you can turn off this feature:

    1)At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button and then select Options
    2)Select the Privacy panel.
    3)Click on 'Set Firefox will' drop down menu, select custom settings for history.
    4)Uncheck 'Remeber my downloading and browsing history'.
    5)Check 'clear history when Firefox closes'. In this setting check all options from history panel.
    6)Delete all stored cookies from 'Show cookies' option.
    7)Click OK and exit from the window.

    One more thing you can do is, after following all above steps select 'never remember history' option at step 3.

    Thanks,

    1. First of all you have to do is just click on the options button in Firefox if you are using the latest browser of Firefox then you have to click on tools and than on the option button.
    2. Then you must see a privacy panel in the options click on that.
    3. Click on a button Firefox will and than a drop down menu will come down.
    4. Then a button will be checked that is remember my history un-check that button and than click on okay.
    5. This doesn't show you the previous sites used by you than you can go to history and than simply clear that.
