Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video Browsing privately, part of Up and Running with the Firefox Browser.
- Firefox stores a lot of data…that could be considered personal, private information,…as we've discussed in other movies in this chapter.…Firefox stores your browser history…and website cookies and cache,…as well as any passwords or autofill information…that you may have stored.…We've seen how you can clear browser history,…cookies, cache, and other data that's stored in Firefox.…But there's also an excellent feature called…Private Browsing, which prevents Firefox from saving…any of this history and data, but just on a temporary basis.…
This way, you don't have to worry about…changing your settings in Firefox,…you can just enable the Private Browsing mode…in those times when you don't want Firefox…to remember your information.…To start in the Private Browsing mode,…we need to go to the Menu in the top right…and then hit this option for a New Private Window.…When I do this, it opens up a new window in Firefox.…And it's important that you notice this mask icon…up in the top of the window.…That tells me that this is a private window.…
