Maybe we can see this added to an extension ala Firesomething... Sanatize Something.

That is an awesome idea :D

More seriously this time, I think I like the "Clear Tracks" idea.

Couple thoughts...

What would the police or military call the act of removing / destroying "Sensitive information" or "Evidence" ?

I bet some goverment agency probably already uses the termonology we're looking for, or at least something close to it.

OK, another idea...

Get rid of the words all together, and just have a little picture of a bar of soap.

"wipe" is GI-speak The fact that it is normally associated with something else is their fault.

How aboout soap-on-a-rope? Shaped like a propeller cap.

Think about that for a moment. Would you even be able to recognize the picture as a bar of soap at that size, in that context?

Ohhh. Whoops :oops: I probably should've known, given how most of the suggestions seem to be jokes :)

Cloak Firefox :)

Groom Firefox (though that doesn't seem to describe the function too well...)

Took me about a week to figure out it didn't mean that :/

"Delete Temporary Data" seems pretty self-explanatory and not too verbose. Similarly "Sanitize Settings" could become "Temporary Data Deletion Settings...".
