User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/3.1b2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/3.1b2

In Tools->Options->Privacy->Private Data->Settings I have unchecked the "Saved Passwords". When I close the browser I get "clear Recent History". In this dialog I see the "Saved Passwords" checked. Which has resulted in clearing of all my saved password from Password Manager. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uncheck In Tools->Options->Privacy->Private Data->Settings-> Saved passwords
2. Close the Browser
3. Diaglog for clearing recent history shows up
4. The "Saved password" check-box will be checked in this.
Actual Results:  
All My stored passwords got cleared, Since I didn't notice the "Saved password" check box being checked

Expected Results:  
THe "Saved password" check-box shouldn't have been checked.

Screen shot showing the Settings dialog & clear private history dialog
The clear on exit dialog has been removed recently, so I think this bug is obsolete.

I meant the "Ask me before clearing private data" option has been removed from the Options window; the dialog is not shown anymore on exit.

Thanks for the response,  Because of this issue, all my stored passwords got wiped out. I hope the root cause of this has been identified. Otherwise we could end up in same issue, where the stored passwords will be cleared without the users knowledge.

I have a similar problem. If I manually clear private data, and uncheck everything EXCEPT authenticated sessions, then it wipes out all my passwords. I can duplicate this problem every time.
Firefox 3.0 is now EOL, please try latest version of Firefox and feel free to open if it reproducible on latest build
