User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.10) Gecko/2009042316 Firefox/3.0.10 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.10) Gecko/2009042316 Firefox/3.0.10 (.NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I put this in security as I am not sure which catagory to file it under.  I have all options turned off on history and I have clear all data when existing checked but when you restart Firefox and start typing in the address bar, all previously visited site shwo in a dropdown box.  This completely defeats the idea behind "privacy" and erase all contains.  This means your saving the list of sites somewhere!?  Thanks

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefix
2. Start typing on Address Bar

Actual Results:  
N/A = no special steps


If I have clear all data options checked, nothing should be saved.  Now it displays every site you went too.

If you see a solid yellow star next to each entry in the dropdown, then you are seeing your own bookmarks which, given that they also appear in the Bookmarks dropdown, is not a security bug. To hide unvisited urls in that dropdown install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7429
If this is not the case, please comment with more details of your OS version, current installed extensions, themes and plugins from Tools -> Add-ons
