How to always start Mozilla Firefox in private browser mode


If you use Firefox and do not want to track every site you visit, you can configure your browser to always use private browsing. Once you close all Firefox windows, no browsing history will be saved. See how you can activate it.

 

What is a private browsing feature?

Private Browsing is a feature in Firefox that does not save your browsing history, download history, completed forms, searches, and other types of local data between browser sessions. (A browser session ends when you have completely closed all Firefox windows.)

In fact, Firefox will not save your browsing history or within your browser, except for a list of recently closed tabs that will be restored when you exit Firefox completely.

The private browsing feature is more useful when you share a computer with others and do not want them to see the sites you have visited. However, it does not prevent you from tracking your browsing activity in other ways - including your ISP, through your router, and from sites that track your IP address.

How to always use the private browsing feature in Firefox

First, open Firefox. Click on the hamburger-like icon in the upper right corner of the window.

When the menu appears, select "Options".
On the Options page, go to the "Privacy and Security" settings by clicking on the padlock icon in the sidebar.
On the "Privacy and Security" page, scroll down until you find the "History" section. Click the drop-down menu next to "Firefox Will" and select "Use custom history settings".
With the "Custom Settings" option, look under the drop-down menu. Check the box next to "Always use private browsing".
Clicking the check box will ask Firefox to restart the browser. Click "Restart Firefox Now".
After Firefox restarts, the private browsing feature will always be enabled.
To confirm, go back to Options> Privacy & security> History. There should be a check mark next to the "Always use private browsing" box.
Just remember to close all your browser windows when you are done with your session.
