If you're not using Firefox under profile settings, just check all the boxes when clearing its data. Otherwise download and install Ccleaner from: CCleaner - Slim

Let us know the results!

I think it is now labelled "Clear recent History" which is available under "Tools".

Also under Tools: Privacy -- Clear history when firefox closes (tick) -- Settings.

Yes, as Wallonn7 shows in his screenshot (might look slightly different in 3.6)

Yes, it'll do. You can use keyboard shortcut too > "Ctrl + Shift + Delete".

Are your doubts solve?!

There would be an option called "Everything" in the time range. See this.
