The Mozilla Firefox, like several other web browsers, keeps a log of all the searches that you make online. It then uses keywords from it to prompt you with suggestions on succeeding uses of the browser.

But although this provides a lot of conveniences – both to you and your browser – it can also jeopardise your security and prove to be harmful if not managed properly. This is especially found in cases when you’re sharing someone else’s computer.

And hence, you may wish to trash the search history saved in the Firefox web browser that you’ve used. By doing this, you secure yourself from privacy threats arising out of the misuse of all the saved data.

Steps to Delete Search History from Firefox

To delete your search history from Firefox, do the following actions:

  1. Open your Firefox browser.
  2. Go to the Firefox menu, present in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window
  3. From the drop-down menu that appears, click on Options
  4. With this, Firefox’s Options dialogue box will open up. On it, Click on Privacy
  5. In the History section, choose to Clear your history link
  6. A new dialogue box will open up, saying Clear all history. In it, make sure that you put a check mark beside the Form & Search History option
  7. Choose the Clear Now button to delete your search history.

You’ll be done with the process in a moment. Now, when you open any website or search for something, you will not get any suggestions from Firefox since there is no relevant Search History.

It is a good practice to keep deleting the search history from browsers from time to time. Doing this, you can get rid of all the unnecessary suggestions that the browser shows you. And, you also get rid of the advertisements that you see on various websites depending upon your History.
