Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.

  • "3-bar" menu button > Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File > Exit
  • Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox
  • Linux: File > Quit

  • Options/Preferences > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes"

the exit command did the trick, I'll remember that in the future. I never had that "erase history upon exit" setting on.
