Is there any way in the "Show ALL Bookmarks"(bad name BTW I think)/CTRL+SHIFT+B/Library to make Firefox focus on "Bookmarks Menu" instead of "All Bookmarks" when opening it (Library)?

Also: Is it possible (like it was in FF 2) to have both the "show my windows and tabs from last time" option chosen at the same time as "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox" with the "Browser History" checked in settings and then on shutdown history is cleared and on opening tabs from last sessions are shown?

It was possible in FF 2, but with FF 3 beta 4 (portable) when I check both of these settings, then when I open FF up after having closed it: last session is not shown... only an about:blank page :(.

Why has this change been done? Now it isn't possible to use the built-in session restore along with clear history on shutdown? Why? Please tell me there is a fix! other than installing a extension for it...

Its annoying to have to clear the history manually before shutdown :(
