How do I delete the history?

I can't find a way to delete the browser history. Is it possible on firefox mobile?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can clear all privacy related settings via the clear private data button in the preferences. This will clear browsing history, cookies, etc.

If you need specific control over what is cleared the two following addons can tweak the behavior.

If you are having trouble clearing Firefox's settings in the application then you can use the system wide settings. This will reset Firefox to a base install.

  • press the Home button
  • press the Menu button
  • select Settings
  • select Applications
  • select Manage Applicaitons
  • select All
  • select Firefox or Firefox Beta
  • select Clear Data

Oh, oh, sorry, and a bit uncomfortable that mobile version would be different. I'll be wary of Android and of "mobile" tags until I have one.
