I have to clear the Firefox history using javascript. I have done this in IE but that is not working perfectly in firefox. Please help me.

This is the web application and I have to remove the pages from cache as after the user sign out from the web site.

You can prevent your site from adding to the history queue, but you can't remove anything that is already there with javascript. In any browser.

I would consider this malicious programming, too.

If you want to prevent caching, there are better means rather than trying to remove the history. You can use server-side settings (including your server software) as well as meta tags (though they're not completely reliable). Another option is to add something to the url to force the browser to retrieve the page from the server.
