how to clear cookies for firefox on browser close


First off, I'm working with ASP .net and VB.

I'm wondering if there is a way to clear cookies for firefox when closing the browser. I haven't set an expiry date for the cookies so they should technically be destroyed when the browser is closed.

This is the case with IE7, IE8, Safari and Chrome. However, it is not the case with Firefox.

My question is: is there a way to clear the cookies for firefox on browser close?

Go into the preferences and select the privacy tab

Look for Firefox Will: <drop down>
Select use Custom settings from the drop down

Near the bottom put a check mark in Clear history when firefox closes then click the settings button to the right of that.

In there you can select what is cleared when the browser closes.

thanks guys!
oh. So you selected ASP.NET and VB.NET for fun right? Or would you ask each of the users of your website to manually clear the cookies?
