Question about Mozilla Firefox

1 Answer

Can't Uncheck "Always clear my private data when..."

I can uncheck it in a current session, but as soon as I close the browser, it comes back up checked again... like it is not saving my settings.
This becomes a pain because every time I am searching for a name that I have searched for before, rather than it automatically popping up from a previous session, I need the type in everything new all over again. Firefox has only been this way for the revision 3 that I am running.

Stopping browsing history


Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing." Private browsing must be activated each time you open your browser.

First, open your Internet Options. Delete all temp files and history files.

CC Cleaner is a great free tool to do this and more. Download and install. Run it and clean everything it finds.

WHEN I GO TO MY GOOGLE HOME AND ENTER A WEB TO SEARCH I AM ALWAYS REDIRECTED TO SOMEOTHER SEARCH ENGINE OR CITY SEARCH. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO GET OUT OF THIS MESS.


Go to the preferences or settings menu for your browser of choice, and set your home page to 'www.google.com'. If you are using a Windows PC, open Internet Explorer, click the options button, then Internet Options. Look for a tab labeled 'Connections' and click it. Then click the button labeled 'LAN Settings'. If the box labeled 'Use a proxy server' is checked, uncheck it. If it is not checked, close out of Internet Explorer. In either case, close Internet Explorer and open the browser again. This should clear your issue.
If you're on a Mac, there are different steps. Let me know if you need additional help.
