Better understand browsing in Firefox in this free lesson. When you're done, you'll know all about Firefox browsing.

Browsing history

Like all browsers, Firefox keeps a record of the websites you visit, which is known as your browsing history. Firefox allows you to search your history to find a previously viewed page and delete your history for the sake of privacy.

To view your browsing history:

  1. Click the menu button in the top-right corner of the browser, select History, then select Show All History.
  2. The Library will appear in a new window with your recent browsing history. The history includes every site you've viewed in the last week. The list is sorted by date, so the most recent history appears at the top of the page. If you want to return to a website, simply double-click the link.
  3. If you can't remember the exact address or name of a webpage you've visited before, you can try searching the history. Enter a search term or website into the search bar. A list of results will appear automatically.
