Firefox stores session data despite clearing all private data on exit

I am a lucky user of Firefox 2.0.0.2. There is a new feature that despite clearing all the private data (I mean ALL private data) makes FF, when restarted, ask me this stupid question about "Restoring" or "Starting" a new session. I though this was to be a really secure browser and after exiting no private data to be store stored.

How do I turn this Session State Remember feature off? :)

Never miond, I'll just give you the lowdown now.

Go to your Address Bar, type in it

about:config

and hit Enter.
Your config file will pop up. At the top of it is a Filter line, type
browser.sessionstore.enabled

into that filter.  Simply right click it and select
Toggle.  Restart firefox, and that prompt should be gone.


You might want to look at htis page also for more info.
