Precise Clear History Erases Firefox History by Specified Dates

Earlier this month I wrote why the Clear Recent History setting in Firefox (and Chrome) is wrong and how we can fix it by using an add-on that automatically deletes browsing history older than a certain number of days, as opposed to the default behavior of deleting only recent history. Here is another Firefox history related add-on that gives you more granular control on what to keep and delete from Firefox’s history.

Precise Clear History is a Firefox extension that makes the ‘Clear Recent History’ function more smarter by allowing you to delete history by specific date and time. The extension adds three additional date and time ranges aside from the usual one hour, four hour and one day time ranges. You can delete history before a specific date, after a specific date as well as between two specific dates. It even lets you choose the exact time.


Additionally, a new drop down menu lets you quickly select dates ranging from last 7 days, to last 30 dates. And not only it deletes the history, but also removes cache, cookies, form data, site preferences, saved sessions etc.


Precise Clear History settings can be accessed from the default ‘Clear Recent History’ function from ‘Tools’ menu in Firefox.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
