 The files you need to wipe to securely delete your Firefox browser tracks are listed below. You need to change "Your Profile Name" to match your own Windows installation. Also, the folder called "9k342x66.default" will be different for every user. Adjust as necessary.

 

All of the files and folders are located in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile Name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\9k342x66.default
