If you are a fan of Mozilla Firefox and want to quickly clear your browsing history, a simple keyboard shortcut is available to help you work on Windows, Mac and Linux. Here’s how to use it.
First, open ̵
- Windows or Linux: Press Ctrl + Shift + Delete.
- Mac: Press Command + Shift + Delete.
After pressing the appropriate shortcut, a “Clear All History” window will appear.
If you want to change any of the settings, such as the “Time range to clear” or which elements of your history you want to clear, you can do so now with your mouse or trackpad.

When you are done, click on ‘OK’.
Your Firefox browsing history will be cleared based on the settings you selected.
The next time you open the “Clear All History” window, it remembers the last settings you chose, so you can quickly clear the history by pressing Enter – no mouse required.
If you find yourself regularly clearing your history, you can also enable private browsing mode (or even leave it on all the time). In that mode, Firefox will never remember your browsing history. Have fun browsing!
