How can I stop firefox (mobile) on android from retaining form data?


I have an android based kiosk used by patients for appointment check in. For some reason I can't stop previously entered patient names from showing up in forms.

I either want to disable go data or make the browser to permanently be in guest session mode.

Is this possible?

You can use the about:config preferences editor to disable the FormFill feature.

In the Awesomebar, type or paste about:config and tap the Go arrow.

Type form into the search box and tap the Enter key to find all preferences that contain form.

Under browser.formfill.enable tap the Toggle button to switch its value from true to false.

This won't clear previously saved entries, but will prevent them from appearing as suggestions and will prevent the saving of new ones.
