The standard approach is:

menu > Settings > Privacy > Clear Private Data

History is one of the many checkboxes in that dialog.

If you return to a tab and tap the address bar, does the History list still show entries? If they aren't there, where are you finding history?

Hi kielmanator, it really should be cleared immediately. Works for me on a Gingerbread device.

Are you using Firefox Sync? I don't use Sync and don't know whether that affects what you see on the History tab.
