I have private browsing enabled. it's not working, and I can't clear it.

Posted

The History menu still shows all my recent history. I have private browsing enabled. AND...there is no 'clear history' button on the History menu, so I can't clear it. How do I fix both of these?

Private Browsing does not add to your History, but it does not clear the History.

You may in the History/Bookmarks library delete history entries either single entries, multiple or whole folders. There are also menu options to clear History etc. See
