Have recently installed Firefox 3.0.1 When I click the drop-down arrow to the right of the address line all recently typed and searched and found web site addresses are on the list. I would like to empty that list when I exit Firefox so that the next person who may use my computer will not be able to see where I've been or browsed. How?

Went there - did that but the drop-down list of recently typed or visited web sites still appears whenever I click the down arrow at the end of the address line.

Yes, have followed the instructions a few times over the past couple of days - always restarting Firefox.

Try a CTRL+SHIFT+H, Click on History on the left panel, then click on the first entry on the right panel, scroll down to the bottom, press the SHIFT key and hold it while clicking on the last entry, then press the DELETE key.

Close the browser. Restart it.

The History will come back as you use the browser, but it should still go away with each closure of the browser.

Could it be the Smart Location Bar rather than History?
