Delete Address Bar History in Firefox
An Address Bar that pops up and reports a list of your previously visited websites can clutter
your browser and allow others to invade your privacy. Follow these tips to clean up your
Address Bar History and keep its contents from prying eyes.
Delete single URL address from the Auto Complete feature by typing the beginning of the
domain name in the Address Bar. Highlight the address with either an arrow key or your mouse
and clicking "Shift" and "Delete" on your keyboard. The address should disappear from Firefox's
Auto Complete function.
Remove drop-down lists of address bar history by selecting "Tools" from the browser's menu and
choosing "Clear Private Data." Make sure that "Browsing History" is checked before pressing
"Clear Private Data Now."
Disable history to ensure that Address Bar History won't show up again. Go to "Tools" and
"Options" in your browser's menu. Locate the "Remember visited pages for the last...days" field
and change the number to "0" before clicking "OK" to save your changes. This configuration
ensures that your browser won't remember what websites you visit and the addresses won't show
on your Address Bar's History on the drop-down menu.
