Can anyone tell me if Firefox 9.0.1 has a "Clear history at shutdown" option.

Thanks for the reply Allan.

It seems that the Firefox 9.0.1 version doesn't have the "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox" option anymore.

Thanks Eyesee and Allan.

I went into Tools, Options, Privacy but still couldn't find it, but eventually found it with a bit of clicking.

For anyone else who is interested.

When I was in the Privacy tag I clicked on the "Firefox will" drop down menu then clicked on the "Use custom setting for history" option and there it was :thumbsup:
