Is it possible to schedule firefox to clear all web history for the past, say 2 hours, each hour or so?

I haven't seen that anywhere. I know you can set it to clear history on shut down, which you could do easily enough every couple of hours. I do that anyway, as it seems to make FF run faster if you've been online for a while. (That might just be my imagination, but it does seem like sites start to drag a bit, but speed up if you restart FF.)

I've been manually doing CTRL/SHIFT + DELETE each hour or so to clear Google cookies and it's getting old.

I can't exclude Google from laying cookies because I use their products with clients.

A manual history clear it takes a few seconds, why would you search for a scheduler ? :)

What about the Close'n Forget addon?

"Very simple add-on that closes the current tab and make Firefox forget about the visit (suppressing cookies related to the current page, cleaning the browser history and so on)."

Cool addon, but it doesn't seem to reliably remove all Google cookies.
