Hello Reader!


If you follow the instructions here: How-To Clear Firefox 3 Browsing History, Cache and Private Data and then uninstall Firefox, you should be fine. Firefox is very good about actually clearing all cache, history, cookies etc... from all locations in memory and disk.


To answer your question about "Why are there products on the market to delete Temp. Internet Files", well it's because people like to take advantage of people who have less experience with computers. If profit can be made, companies will do whatever it takes even if it means exploiting people.


Now, that being said. There are some Internet Explorer files which are not easy to delete. I can help you with that if it's a question however, speaking specifically to Firefox you should be fine following the instructions.


Hope that helps,
