If you want a private browsing session where there is no record taken of the pages you visited and the keywords you entered anywhere (search queries, passwords etc.), Firefox offers the right option for you. The Private Browsing feature saves your current windows and tabs and opens up a new empty window that does not save any histories or inputs. After ending the session, it restores your previously closed windows and tabs. To access it on Firefox 7, browse the Firefox menu and click Start Private Browsing:

If you are still using Firefox 3.6, go to Tools instead and choose the appropriate option there:

But apart from this option, to truly erase your footsteps you need to take another step. One could still simply enter

ipconfig /displaydns

into a command line and see what sites you were on. To prevent this, open a command line yourself by entering cmd into a Run... prompt and enter

ipconfig /flushdns
