How can I make Firefox remember my session while still clearing the browsing history on close?

I am aware, thanks to a thread [1], that Firefox doesn't save sessions when browsing history is cleared at close, as effectively the open tabs are themselves cleared from the history before the session is saved.

I think the Tab Mix Plus addon, having its own session manager would be able to do this. You'll need to tweak the built in Firefox settings via Tools-Options-"Firefox will never remember history". I'm fairly sure that it'll work on Mac.

"Depending upon how much control you need, in addition to the aforementioned options, Tab Mix Plus also has a Lock Tab and a Protect Tab option, which may prove to be what you need.

If you wish to take that a stage further you could take a look at PermaTabs Mod which provides similar functionality.

Further still would be Session Manager. This replaces the inbuilt session manager and that of Tab Mix plus, and offers additional functionality."
