I think you can have it clear history, and other info like that at close everytime, but I'm not sure. I don't use firefox very often. Search the preferences section under tools (I think). You might find something useful.

Tools > Options > Privacy. Uncheck the box next to "Remember what I enter in forms and the search bar."

If you want it to clear private data, Under Privacy, check the box next to "Always clear my private data when I close Fireox". Then click the settings button and leave only the "Saved Form Information" box checked.
