And in FireFox, click on Tools
then click on Options
on the menu that comes up. Then click on the Privacy
icon at the top near the left on the window that comes up. Then click on the Saved Forms
tab near the left and a bit lower down. There will be a button labeled "Clear Saved Forms Data Now
" lower down and to the right. Click on it, and your saved form information will be gone.
To avoid the need to do this step in future, click on the Settings
button even lower down and to the right. Put a green check mark in the box by everything you want cleared when finished browsing by clicking on the little box by that option under the privacy menu on the window: saved form information
is one of the options. I have it boxed in green in the picture below. Privacy freak that I am - having spent my first 10+ years on public computers - I have them all checked. You can see that in the picture below.
Then put a check in the little box by "Clear Private Data When Closing FireFox
" under the settings menu lower down. I have it boxed in orange in the picture above. Click on Okay
on the settings window, then Okay
on the Options
Now when you close all FireFox windows, you'll get a message window that looks like this:
Click on the Clear Private Data Now
button, and everything will be cleared away. You'll notice in the picture above, that the checks by passwords and download history are grayed out. This is because there is no data to delete from these categories.
Note: if FireFox unexpectedly closes or the power goes off when in FireFox, the above message will come up when you choose to open FireFox. Click on okay, then FireFox will open normally.
