Firefox 22 on Android tablet fails to clear private data


I'm running Android 4.1.1 Firefox for Android v22 Acer Iconia tablet. so when I follow the instructions to go to Settings and delete all the private data I expect all history and cache to be deleted except. After I get the "private data deleted" confirmation if I open a new tab all the history is still there. This is an undesirable 'feature'

The sync with other devices is manual - I do it every week or so it's not much use to me

before I uninstall and use a different browser as my default, what's stopping the browser from behaving as I expect it to.

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Tablet; rv:22.0) Gecko/22.0 Firefox/22.0
