In the Preferences Page, in the Privacy section, when the clear all button is
pressed, the relavent function is executed, But the mouse icn doesn't change to
a hourglass(which is normal)..This leads the user to think that FF has finished
executing, and if the user tries to close/move the dialog, FF can lose focus or
worst of all crash. It hasn't happened to me yet.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Option -> Privacy -> Clear All

Actual Results:  
The software hangs for a few seconds. The dialog box becomes white temporarily.
 Later, FF gains control (once the function has been executed)

Expected Results:  
Once the clear all button is clicked, the mouse pointer should turn to an
hourglass indicating that FF is processing( or a please wait statement), to
inidcate to the user that FF is processing.
