    Switching to Firefox

    I want to switch to Firefox and dump IE however, I don't know anything about Firefox's security, for example, I know where IE keeps it's temp file and there are a variety of programs (I use crap cleaner) to clean out this file.

    What does Firefox do in this regard? Are issues such as cleaning out the history cache and deleting cookies simple?

    You're advice and input is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Yes its as simple as Tools> Options> Privacy

    You can set FF to clear these when you close brower if you like, CCleaner also works on FF.

    Or you can press Ctrl+Shift+Del if you want to clear private data manually.

    What I like in FF is that I could manualy earase the stuff I do not want, for e.g. I want to get rid of the saved info in IE so I have to delete the files, and the history, but in FF it is more specific, there is an option for almost everything
