Thanks a lot, greetings from France!

Ogu

change the toolbar button please! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like this extension, I've used it for ages, but omigod that toolbar button must be the ugliest thing I've ever seen, it used to feature a back padlock, now it's changed to some kinda paper shredder icon .... Ugh!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a useful add-on. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is the lack of available customization.

One more feature, please. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Can someone make an addon that opens the Clear Private Data window when you close Firefox? So it can ask you if you want to clear private data or not.

Pl0x.

Leaving Clear History dialog expaned improves my usage Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,

I had reservations, but subsequently found that if you expand the the 'clear history' dialog that, that setting is remembered.

So when you subsequently 'clear history' via the menu or thru right click you will be able to see what options the functuion will clear and amend them as needed.

I had a similar view to emarrell when I first used it. However I subsequently found that if you expand the the 'clear history' dialog that, that setting is remembered.

This used to be one of my top 5 add-ons, but with this additional 'Clear Now' popup it's gone from simple to obnoxiously inconvenient.

emarell, below, said it best: just do the job without the additional clicking. If you feel that there are users out there who don't know what they are clearing, then give the rest of us an option to skip that that extra step.

About the Clear recent History Dialog

At the moment there is no way to suppress the "Clear Recent History" dialog in Firefox 3.5 and 3.5.1. In previous versions, there was a option that you could set that would prevent said related dialog from showing up whenever you would "Clear Private Data", but that option has been completely removed in present Firefox 3.5.x versions by Mozilla and not by me. I will look into finding a way to suppress the dialog if possible. Thank you for using my Add-on.

Good Icon, Bad Dialog Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great plugin. I like the new icon - it clearly indicates this plugin's function, whereas the lock icon did not. Like emarell (July 5, 2009) I also would like the dialog box to be suppressed.
