Clear Private Data when closing the application

Hi, I just noticed that at a few of my customer sites where I have connected with the Quickconnect feature, If you hit the reconnect button it will connect to the last session. This could be a security problem. To be more secure, could you create an option in the settings to clear the private data when the app closes like Firefox can.

Not sure how many of my customer sites can just open up the app now and hit reconnect and access my data until I manually go in and Clear Private Data from Quick Connect history.

You can do this with:
Edit -> Clear Private Data

Also, under:
Settings -> Interface -> Do not save passwords.

Also, are you at current code? For me on 3.5, the reconnect option is greyed out after close and restart of FileZilla, even without having to use the above two options.

If this does what you need, please close the ticket after confirming.

If not, reply here.

The feature seems to be fixed, so no need to keep this RFE open. However, if you believe it does not work as requested, please feel free re-open this issue.
