Firefox 24 missing clear cache on exit option

Posted

I was going to enable the option to clear cache on exit, and found this answer:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache

However, in firefox 24, the privacy tab is totally different than the page shows. My option has "tracking", "history" and "Location Bar", instead of just history and location bar. Under "History" there is only on dropdown menu that does not have the "Clear History when Firefox Exists" and the "setting" button.

Why this feature is removed from v24?

Chosen solution

To see all History and Cookie settings, choose:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"

Note Firefox will disable the disk cache if you use "Clear history when Firefox closes".
You can see that by the missing disk cache section on the about:cache and and in "Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network"
