As horrible looking as this is and I'm sure there is an easier way to do
this, you can toss this into a batch file, execute it and it will delete the
FF sqlite db's for all users.  New sqlite files are recreated upon next FF

@echo off
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%L IN ('dir /b ^"C:\Documents and Settings^"') DO echo
%%L >> names.txt
FOR /F "tokens=1" %%M IN (names.txt) DO FOR /F "tokens=*" %%N IN ('dir /b
"C:\Documents and Settings\%%M\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*.default"') DO del /q /f "C:\Documents and
Settings\%%M\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%%N\*.sqlite"
del names.txt

If you only want to delete your user's history put this in a .bat
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%B IN ('dir /b ^"%USERPROFILE%\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles^"') DO del /q /f
"%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%%B\*.sqlite"

Or just delete all the sqlite files via the del cmd for that user.....

I found this online for IE:     InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351

But for Firefox on Windows I'm drawing a blank.
