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.
