I am using Mozilla Fire Fox. I was told Fire Fox doesn't hold onto the History. I keep deleting the history. With F/F open I click on Google to look on the web. When I click on say M= Manchester. If I was to look at something else beginning with M it will show Manchester. I do not want this I want nothing showing which sites I have been looking at. What can I do about this please?

You need to go into Firefox Tools > Options > Privacy > choose 'Never remember history' > OK to save.

However, if you need other Privacy aspects, do the same as above, but this time choose 'Use custom settings for history' & tick/untick what you need/don't need. G

Thank you so much for your help. I was going into History and deleting from there. I did try CClean That didn't work. Going into tools, deleting from there did;-). I just clicked on delete history.

What do you mean by this? However""""

You also need to stop Google prompting your search history, click the box under the saved searches on the left hand side of the Google page so that they dont show.

Can I do all you tell me while I am on this site? I have my top rows back again so I can see tools etc. So could I click on Tools etc from here and do what you suggested?

I cannot find this. I open F/F and see Google but cannot see saved searches. I have Windows &

"What do you mean by this?"

If you have saved logins on sites, like PCA forum, then you'll need to make the appropriate choices depending on your individual needs. You'll see what these choices are when you select 'Use custom settings for history'.

If they don't apply to you, simply do what I said in my first sentence choosing 'Never remember history'. There are no other options to choose for this. G

I'm lost
1) Do you mean google might be trying to make my PC remember my History? I cannot see Saved searches to click on a box.
2) if you need other Privacy aspects, do the same as above, but this time choose 'Use custom settings for history' & tick/untick what you need/don't need. G

Sorry I do not know what you mean. If I have clicked on Never save history then everything should be private. But if I was to put PCA in Bookmark then I would hope to be able to click on this to go directly to PCA.

Could you explain a little more simply to me please? sorry if my spelling is wrong I have lost my rows where I can see spell check

If I want to save PCA in bookmark should I go to Custom Settings and write down PCA?

Press F11

That makes the toolbars either appear (show) or disappear (hide).

If in 'disappear'(hide toolbars) mode they will appear temporarily when mouse cursor is taken to top of screen, then when mouse cursor is moved down the screen the toolbars will hide again.

Perhaps a screenshot of the settings will explain it better click here.

Again, it comes down to what YOU need/don't need. If the above doesn't work for you, experiment a little - as any changes you make are easily reversible. G
