Private browsing means that you can browse without the pages you visit being recorded. It also doesn’t save temporary internet files, cookies and form data. However, private browsing will still not be hidden from your employer, government or service provider. Any files that you download or bookmarks that you create will also be stored on your computer. With that in mind, let’s see how to browse in private with Firefox.

1. Open Firefox from your Desktop or Start Menu. Double click on it.
