Just like other web browsers, Firefox remembers lots of information that you used to surf the internet using this browser. Collected information is used for better user experience on Firefox. But the user can control on how much information to be collected by Firefox. You can create a private browsing window and browse internet privately. Or you can clear Firefox history time to time.
