Browsing History.

Recommended Posts

I use both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome as browsers.

Does CCleaner automatically remove internet history, for both these browsers, when the "run cleaner" and then the "ok" buttons are clicked?

as long as the settings haven't been modified, then Yes.

the options for History (IE) and Internet History (Chrome) are ticked be default.


MS has made changes recently to IE in how data is stored, and CC has changed to cater for that, and some users are seeing slow CC runtimes or history not being cleaned, so get back to us if that is your experience.

Backup now & backup often.

Be sure both browsers are exited before cleaning




Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

I use FF and I noticed recently that it is not only memorizing my login names for various web sites (by using auto-fill when I hover over a blank fill-in bar), but it is also starting to memorize one of my recent passwords. I don't believe it's a History thing, but I can't find anywhere in FF options how to shut off auto-fill. Is it maybe a Windows thing? (I have Win7.) I don't recall ever turning that on if I ever came across it. And I don't remember where to find that as well.


I hate growing old.

Trium, I went into the Privacy settings in FF and the closest thing I could find to disable 'auto-fill' was this (with an on/off checkbox)...


"Remember search and form history"


"Form history" is the closest term that I assume would match "auto-fill" in FF. So I turned it off.


Then I turned it on again. Then off again. Then on again. Then off again.


Five minutes later I got a call from some woman in Cambodia. She said, "Stop doing that." :ph34r:



On a more serious note, I'll see if turning it 'off' has any effect when I reboot FF later.
