Erase Firefox Browser History
Each time you enter information into a form on a website, Firefox stores some of that data. For example, you may have noticed each time you fill out your name in a form that after typing the first letter or two, your whole name becomes populated in the field. This is because Firefox has stored your name from entry in a previous form. This helps speed up your browsing as it Firefox automatically suggest information you have typed previously.
Although this can be very convenient, it can also become an obvious privacy issue. Those stored information can be easily discovered by anyone who has access to your computer.
