Firefox Tip: Clear your file download history

Posted on March 19, 2007. Filed under: Advice, Firefox |

Weblog Of Zen and Computing reports that you may be able to speed up Firefox by clearing out its Download history.

To do so, from the dialog, hit the “Clean up” button. I don’t know how much this list actually affects performance, but it’s a good way to make sure the next person who uses your browser doesn’t see you just downloaded a video called naughty.avi.
