past searches being saved even while private browsing

Hello!

I always use private browsing so I thought that my history was totally not being saved, but discovered recently that when I started to type within the search field, that many of my past searches were listed in the search field with the type highlighted in purple. I had to manually go in and delete all of these past searches. I don't want any search history to be saved. Is there a setting in preferences that I'm somehow missing? Why is Firefox saving these past searches if I have it set to Always Use Private Browsing?

Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestion FredMcD. I finally figured out what the issue was, because I tried browsing in Safari and realized that it was doing the same thing in that browser, too. I use Yahoo as my homepage, and I do my searches through there, so I realized it had something to do with Yahoo. Sure enough, Yahoo was saving my history! I had to switch it off in their settings, and the problem went away!

This isn't possible to save cache or history when one uses private mode. I've done this and no history or cache was saved. Are you really sure your opening in private mode and mistaken standard browser from private mode. And as no one is there when this happens - there no way to verify this.

Hi Dropa,

Thank you for your reply. I have tried both "Never Remember History" and also the custom "Always use private browsing", and I always go to File/New Private Window before I do a search.

I just did a test- I opened a new private window, did a search for Squarespace, and then closed that window. When I opened another new private window, Squarespace was in the search field, remembered by Firefox. I have attached some screenshots of my settings and of the Squarespace example.

Thank you!

That could be the form filler built into Firefox. Click in the field, enter a character or two and STOP ! Using the arrow keys, highlight an unwanted entry. Then press Shift + Delete

Repeat as needed.
