Firefox also give the option of private browsing. When you’re using private browsing no history is recorded for a particular session.
To set this click on the menu icon in the top right hand corner (three lines) > select 'New Private window'. Or at the top of the window click on the Firefox button and go to the File menu. Then select 'New Private Window'.
Private Browsing windows have a purple mask at the top.
NB. Private Browsing isn't automatic and has to be turned on for each session.
