How to clear history in adress bar

When you type Web addresses into your address bar, your computer stores a copy of them in your history. When you position your cursor within your address bar and press the down arrow key, you can see your previously visited Web pages. If you share your computer with other people, then you might not want your website history to be visible in your address bar. Luckily, you can delete website history from your address bar.

In Internet Explorer 7 Click "Tools." Click "Internet Options." Click the "General" tab. Click "Delete" next to "Browsing History." Click "Delete History" next to "Address Bar History." Click "Yes." Click "Close." Click "OK." In Internet Explorer 6 Click "Tools." Click "Internet Options." Click the "General" tab. Click "Clear History." Click "OK." In Mozilla Firefox 3 Click "Tools."

Remove toolbars from dropdown menu

Clear the Dropdown Address Bar For security and privacy's sake, you might want to clear the drop-down address bar in your Firefox browser. You can do so in just a few steps. Note that these entries will not be retrievable after they're deleted.
Launch Firefox browser and click your cursor inside the address bar. Begin to type in the address that you wish to delete, but do not press "Enter" or click "Go." You will see the drop-down list auto-populate. Using the up or down keys on your keyboard, scroll down to the item you wish to remove from the listing. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove it permanently. Your browser will now be free of specific items that you wish to remove. Remove Unwanted Toolbars Permanently Web toolbars are add-on programs that enhance functionality of your browser. Usually they improve your online searches, offer quick access buttons to favorite websites and some provide pop-up blockers. However, there are spyware programs that only pose as toolbars. Yet other toolbars, although not harmful, install themselves without your consent. You can easily remove these unwanted toolbars permanently from your PC.

Go to the "Start" menu and click "Control Panel." Click "Uninstall a program" under the Programs area. Scroll through the list of currently installed programs, select the toolbar that you want to remove and click "Uninstall." Follow the step-by-step prompts to uninstall the toolbar. Restart your computer when prompted at the end of the removal. b> Firefox Launch Mozilla Firefox, click the "Tools" drop-down menu, select "Add-ons" and click "Extensions." Click the toolbar you want to remove in the new window. Click the "Uninstall" button. Restart the browser.
Clear the Drop Down Menu in Mozilla Firefox b> Firefox's "autocomplete" feature helps speed up your Web browsing experience. Whenever you type in the browser's location bar, a drop-down menu appears. This menu may contain a mixture of previously visited websites and entries from your bookmarks collection. Although this feature makes it easier to revisit old sites, you may want to clear this drop-down menu when it becomes too large. Clearing the menu can reduce its and prevent others from viewing your browsing history if you share the computer.

Launch Firefox and click "Tools" to display a drop-down menu. Click the "Clear Recent History" option to view the "Clear Recent History" pop-up window. Click "Details." A list of options appears. Remove the check marks from all options, and place a check mark next to "Browsing & Download History." Click "Clear Now." b> Clear Bookmarks Click the "Tools" button again, and then click "Options" to display the "Options" window. Click "Privacy" and find the "Location Bar" section near the bottom of the window. Click the drop-down box in that section and click "Nothing." Click "OK."

How to clear all the history in mozilla?


Try this , hope it wil help you :

Here is a simple extension to disable the "Tools -> Start PrivateBrowsing" menu entry and the "Tools > Clear Recent History" menuentry in Firefox 3.5/6.
The extension hides these menu entries and also disables their shortcutkeys and should prevent Firefox from entering Private Browsing mode.The CSS code (chrome://pbdisable/content/pbdisable.css) in theextension also hides "Tools -> Options-> Privacy -> Automatically start Firefox in a private browsingsession" and the History setting. You can copy that code to userChrome.cssif you want these entries hidden if the extension is disabled. CurrentFirefox versions still process code in userChrome.css if started in Safe_mode.Keep in mind that removing or disabling "Private Browsing" will notmake it impossible to delete private data like visited websites(history) or cache. It is possible to clear the cache via "Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network" and to clear history in the Library and History sidebar.

I would like to clear my password that the mozilla firefox remember when i log in

Open Firefox.
In Firefox 4, you will find the option under the Orange "Firefox" button in the upper left hand corner of the window. From the drop down, select "Options", "Options" again. Navigate to the "Security" tab, you will find a button labeled "Saved Passwords", select this button and you will have the option to remove individual passwords, or remove all saved passwords.
In Firefox 3 (With menus at the top) you'll look for "Tools", "Internet Options", and finally the "Security" tab.
