I have Firefox set to clear my download history, cookies and cache when I close my browser. (Tools/Options/Privacy/Clear history when Firefox closes/Settings/When I close Firefox, it should automatically clear all download history, cookies, cache). I am using FF 4.0.1. This only started happening recently. It used to work.

I'm hoping someone can help?

Check that Firefox closes properly if you exit Firefox.

See "Hang at exit":

FF 8.0 W7 64bit

Have been tearing my hair out trying to get FF to auto remove all history on exit, it used to work until very recently recently.

As I do not have the technical knowledge to carry out open heart surgery inside FF's config I carried out a system restore in W7 . . .

guess what? FF now auto removes all history on exit !

Does this mean that FF is vunerable to attack in any way?

You can check the Clear Recent History settings

If you use cleanup software like CCleaner then check the settings for the Firefox application.
