I was wondering how to clear the following privacy in Firefox 3.6.16:
- when typing address in the address bar, the history meeting the partial typing provided by auto-completion.
- without doing anything, the drop-down list of addresses in address bar
Is it possible to just clear the former without clearing the latter, and without actually clearing the history i.e. you can still get the history by clicking
History->Show All History?
- What is the general strategy of protecting one's own privacy, while keeping the history as much as possible? My case is using Firefox on my personal laptop, which will occasionally be used by others under my account, for example, to help me solve some problems by typing some webpage address and visiting them in Firefox.
Operating systems are Windows 7 & Ubuntu 10.10
