Deleting Browser history: Mozilla Firefox

These instructions will explain how to delete your stored Mozilla Firefox browser data (browser history, browser cache).

If you are looking for other browser instructions, you can find these here.

  1. With the browser open, open the browser history window by simultaneously pressing “Ctrl + Shift + Delete” or “Strg + Shift + Entf”.
  2. Select the period of time for which you wish to delete cached information from the drop down menu, For instance entry Last hour.
  3. Then select all items.
  4. Click Clear.

Alternatively, you can also surf in incognito or private mode, so that your browser doesn’t store any data in the first place.

To do so, open a new incognito window by clicking the hamburger icon in the top right corner of the screen and then clicking “New Private Window”. Or simultaneously press “Ctrl + Shift + P”/“Shift + Cmd + P”.

Browser history (also called browser cache) denotes a type of buffer memory of your browser. Browsers will store content of websites visited (e. g. images), so that they don’t have to be re-downloaded every time you visit, and the site can therefore be displayed more quickly.
