1. Firefox Basics > 8. Flush and Clear Absolutely Everything

Flush and Clear Absolutely Everything

Paranoid about Firefox’s tendency to store things about web pages? Reset your browser back to zero.

You might be confident that Firefox can reset itself for you, or you might only be happy if you scrub the decks for yourself. You can do it either way. A further decision you’re faced with is this: do you want to clear out just the data that Firefox has stored, or do you also want to clear out all modifications to the browser since it was first installed?

To clear, flush, and reset everything from inside the browser, proceed as follows:

  1. Leave just one Firefox browser window open. Change the URL of the currently viewed page to the URL about:blank and display it.
