Click once in the box. Press a letter. Using your arrow keys, highlight what you want to remove, and press Delete.


In the address bar, type about:preferences#privacy<enter>. Under History select Use Custom Settings.

Near the bottom, look for Clear history when Firefox closes and turn it on. To its far right, press Settings.

Place a mark on everything you want cleared when Firefox closes.
