Despite clearing history, setting remember history to never, etc., still Firefox remembers my history in the tabs when I open a new tab. It shows certain sites. This is clearly in direct opposition to the clear history settings I have obviously selected, violating my privacy.
Aside from the cognitive dissonance of a browser that is supposed to be secure being completely insecure, and people not having stopped using it entirely, I assume either someone knows how to turn off tab history, or people are naively using Firefox thinking it is a secure browser.
If the first is the case, and people do know how to turn off tab history, I would like a clear explanation of how to do that, something not only a technical geek could understand.
Type about:config in url address bar. Click, "Yes, I'll be careful!" when warned about about voiding your warranty. In search box at top of next page, type: browser.newtabpage.enabled. Double click on the resulting search result to change value from "true" to "false". Voila!! No more history showing when you open a new tab!! :-)
