How to delete recent browsing and download history in Mozilla Firefox

By default, Firefox records everything from the list of websites you have visited, files you’ve downloaded to your active logins and cookies etc. Even though, this is a very useful feature, you may want to remove this history if you are using a public computer or you share your computer with someone else.

To clear the Firefox history:

1. Click on Menu button, select history option from that menu.
