Like any other browser, Firefox keeps track of your web surfing history, including the websites you visited, downloaded files, and the like. All this is stored privately, and for your convenience, so you can pull up how you squandered your day on the internet again later. This article tells you how to clear your browsing history in Firefox on PC and mobile.
Deleting your history gives you a fresh start and erases your online trail. This is helpful when you accidentally visit incorrect domains and don’t want them to reflect in your browsing history. In other cases, you might not want Firefox to add certain personal downloads to its log.
Luckily, clearing the browser history in Firefox is quite easy, both on PC and mobile. It should only take you a minute to get rid of the same.
