How to make Mozilla Firefox not save internet history

Your rating: None
Mozilla Firefox easily allows you to stop storing your internet history at the touch of a button for personal reasons or to make your computer run faster.
Open Mozila Firefox.
Click on the 'Tools' on the menu bar. If you cannot see it, is is because it is not activated. Right click on the navigation bar and make sure 'Menu Bar' is checked.
Click on 'Options.' A pop up box should appear.
Go to the tab 'Privacy.'
Check the box 'Clear history when Firefox closes.' This will make sure your history is removed when you finish using Firefox. You can also uncheck the 2nd, 3rd and 4th points.
An alternative way is to check the button 'Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session.' This will make sure nothing is saved while browsing.
If you are concerned about privacy, this will ensure that your history is deleted and not found. If you want a faster computer this will ensure you keep your computer to speed.
