Clear your search history in Firefox Search

Firefox's search feature keeps a record of the previous searches you've made.

If you wish, you can remove individual items from your search history or clear your search history entirely.

Firefox understands some things are best forgotten. Here's how to remove an individual search from your history:

  1. Hold your finger down on the search term.
  2. Swipe your finger to the side of the screen.

  2. Tap the small cog icon at the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Tap Clear search history.
