Mozilla has just released Firefox 3.5 a couple of days ago, the latest version of my favorite web browser. If you’re still with the 3.5 Beta version, here is a link to download Firefox 3.5.
Well, if you’ve not been using Mozilla Firefox web browser till now, I strongly suggest you start using it immediately! It is not only more faster than other browsers but also more convenient and easy to use with fantastic functions like Private Browsing Mode.
On the previous beta versions, you could not enable private browsing mode – what you could do is remove your browsing history for just a specific website or just the history of the last few hours browsing.
However, with the release of Firefox 3.5, now you can always start and stop private browsing mode. Here is how you do it.
- Make sure you’ve downloaded Firefox 3.5 and not Firefox 3.5 Beta.
- Click on the tools menu and click on “Start Private Browsing.” You can also use the shortcut simply by pressing Shift + Ctrl + P (Press Shift, Control, and P keys at once together).
- Firefox will ask you to confirm your decision. Confirm it my clicking on “Start Private Browsing” again.
- To end your private browsing session, just again click on “End Private Browsing” on the tools menu or again press Shift + Ctrl + P.
As soon as you activate Private Browsing mode in Firefox, all what you’ve browsed, cookies, and data are stored temporarily, i.e., as soon as you end the session, everything will be flushed out with no traces left behind of your browsing history!
