Beginning with Firefox 29, Mozilla completely redesigned the look and feel of its browser. This fresh coat of paint included some modifications to its menus, where many popular everyday features are found - one being Private Browsing mode. While active, Private Browsing mode ensures that you can surf the Web without leaving any tracks behind on the hard drive such as cache, cookies and other potentially sensitive data. This functionality is especially useful when browsing on a shared computer such as those found at school or work.

This tutorial explains Private Browsing mode as well as how to activate it on the Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

First, open your Firefox browser.
