I used to get a prompt to clear my history selections on exit. Now it seems I have to choose automatic clearing or doing it manually from the Tools menu.

Also, I would like to clear history over X days old. The save history for X days doesn't seem to do anything any more. Either I have history for months or all is cleared. I would really like my history to clear automatically for more than 2 days old. There isn't even a manual way to do it. I can clear recent history or all history, but not older history. This is pretty worthless.

Did I just dream that Firefox had a setting to clear history older than X days? I know that Internet Explorer has it.

Thank you so much for the quick reply. The good news is that I was not dreaming that Mozilla took something away. The better news was an add-on brings it back.

Now that you've shown me the add-on, I see there are many other posts on this topic. For some reason (bad search questions, I suppose), I couldn't find them before I posted my original question.
