    Hi Alex, Here's how to sort out the different {for} sections under "How do I clear my history?":

    • We have a {for not fx11} section. This contains the instructions for Fx 10 and lower. Just leave that one alone for now.
    • Next we have a {for fx11} section. That means the instructions in that section are good for Fx 11 and up. This is no longer true. Now these are only good for Fx 11 - 20. To make that section apply only to Fx 11 - 20 you have to change the {for} markup to:
      {for =fx11,=fx12,=fx13,=fx14,=fx15,=fx16,=fx17,=fx18,=fx19,=fx20}.
    • Finally we have the new instructions. In your revision you based them off of the first, {for not fx11} section but instead you should base it off of that newer section (the one that applies to Fx 11 - 20).

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I forgot to say it on this article but we should also make separate windows xp instructions since we now can.
