Your browsing history, along with cookies, cache, and forms, all make your browsing on Mozilla Firefox extremely easy, but, as with most things in life, doing things the easy way can come back to attack you from the rear!

Hackers can use your cookies and browsing history to gain access to your bank account and any other online persona that you have without having to know your passwords. This is a scary thought, and you should get into the habit of clearing your history regularly.
