Problem Firefox

Link to this post 21 Aug 09

Hallo,
I often use Firefox, a great browser, and sometimes go to Tools - Options - Security - saved password to read and erase the passwords for the sites that I visit.
Do you know if there is a way to shorten this path, maybe insert something in the toolbar to speed up this task?
Thank you

Depends on what version you have, but the quickest way is to go to the "Tools".

There you will find a menu item called "Clear Recent History". You can set it up to delete what you desire...everything, only cookies, only download content etc etc. The latest version of Firefox will have what you want to clear right on the "Clear Recent History".

On older versions you go to "Edit -> Preferences", then to Security tab, from there you'll see a menu item called "Private Data". Click on the settings button and set up what you want Firefox to do when you select Clear Recent History.

Once you have that configured you can just hit "Ctrl + Shift + Del" and it will clear everything automatically.

Hope that helps

I have a question. If you need to delete passwords so often, why do you save them in the first place? Having easy access to passwords is not good for security. You could use a master password for access to passwords and then not worry about anyone else seeing them.
Just my 2 cents.

The problem is that I have to delete a single password at a time and not all.
Thanks the same.
Bye

That's not true. You didn't follow the instructions. It will blow out all your settings if you configure it to. Spend a little time with it and you'll see.
