What setting must you enable to clear the browsing history from the address bar every time Firefox 3.0.8 is closed?

Many thanks.

Tools> Options> Privacy> Tick Always Clear Private Data

If you go into tools/options/privacy, and under "Private Data" tick "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox" then at the same area click "settings" and tick the entry for "browsing history" this might do what you want.

Also make sure none of the "History" boxes are ticked on the same tab

Many thanks for your reply and I have done what you suggested, but the browsing history still shows if you click on the arrow contained in the address bar.

Have a look here although doing what you want if possible at all looks quite complicated in 3.8 click here

Many thanks for your replies.

I downloaded the Add-on ¨Hide Unvisited 3¨ as you suggested and that has done the trick.
