For that I set the "clear private data" tabs to clear everything on exit and exit regularly using the close buttong (not killing/crashing) Also disable the session store in about:config (really should be part of the clear privacy tool btw) After exiting I did a test of "grep -r website-i-visited ~/.mozilla/*" I found that there are always URLs of the visited urls in places.sql This is a serious privacy problem.

Do you have a bookmark of the website-i-visited? Bookmarks are not deleted when you use "clear private data", so that may explain this. This is a bit technical, but another thing you can do to diagnose the issue is to look at the places database to see where website-i-visited is appearing. Just install the sqlite3 command line tool, and then type $ sqlite3 /path/to/places.sqlite .dump And then grep the results to see on what table website-i-visited is stored
No bookmark. Cannot do the sqlite check right now, but will do later.
We use SQLITE_SECURE_DELETE, so this is either an upstream bug or doesn't exist. Regardless, haven't heard from the reporter, so INCOMPLETE.
