    FF 7.01 problems clearing history when Firefox closes

    This is not working for me. When I next open firefox, the cache has not been cleared. I did not have this problem in firefox 4. Anyone else seeing this?

    Hi Ruthy
    Yes I have the same problem with FF 7.0.1, with the history not clearing when FF closes.

    Hi Ruthy
    Maybe this will help. Open FF, tools>options>Privacy tab>settings> Settings for Clearing History, check Browsing History, OK.

    Resolved

    I disabled some add-ons that weren't working in version 7 and the problem went away.

    I had the same problem in reverse. I WANT my previous tabs restored, so I unchecked that box and viola, it remembers them all. What I do though to clear things I want cleared is make websites ask me about cookies, there is an option there to let a site have a cookie that gets deleted when FF closes. I keep some permanent ones but most I let stay only until I close the browser and I have a couple programs to get rid of Flash cookies that I run periodically too. But I use the same tabs so much, I want them to come back up when FF reopens. :^)

    Firefox enable us for use of <a href="http://dadecoder.blogspot.in/2013/01/secured-browsing.html
    "> Auto Delete Browsing History </a> for safe browsing. Where as recent versions of Google Chrome don't have such option.

    Try to use a software like CCleaner to clean up. I switched back to FF v16.
