We all have certain domains we'd rather keep to ourselves. Let's not even waste time discussing the morality thereof.

Clearing my history every time I know someone will use my computer denies me access to my history, which is an important resource for browsing.

As I have one specific domain I'd like to block from my history,

Is it possible, via an add-on or a script of some sort, to permanently (and automatically) block a particular domain(s) from entering into one's history?

ylight, welcome and say no more. I don't know how to achieve exactly what you describe, but I can tell you how I keep certain domains from leaving a trace. Firefox is my primary browser, too, so all of the history is intact. However, I have IE7 set up to never save any history, cookies, form data, or cache files. When I wish to visit certain domains, I use IE7 and when I'm done all traces are gone.

P.S.: we never had this conversation.

or you can go into the history and right click on the ones that you don't want to be seen and delete them or do what scott said.
