I downloaded and installed the Mozilla Browser on my new Windows 7 Pro computer. It seems very simple to use but I did notice that it retains browsing history which does not get deleted when I go to the control panel> internet options> delete browsing history. Is there any way to do this all at once or does the Mozilla Browser have to be done solo?

Control Panel will only affect Microsoft products like IE and Edge. 3rd Party web browsers will have controls within their settings to handle this. For Mozilla Firefox -- https://www.wikihow.com/Clear-the-Cache-in-Firefox
For Chrome -- https://www.wikihow.com/Clear-the-Cache-in-Chrome

An alternative is to use a program such as ccleaner to handle the housecleaning of your browsers as well as Windows files. Personally, I wouldn't go that route as some of the "cleaning" that these programs do can be a bit aggressive and can cause issues.

Bingo. And especially never use ccleaner's registry cleaner.
