Have an option to automatically delete browser hitory when doing a HTTP reording

Every time I do a http recording it's best practice to delete browing history, even cookies, in fact RPT tells us so, see first picture.

Why not have a check box somewhere on this dialog in second picture

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    The temporary profile will have a clean browser history and cookies, but it may not have saved bookmarks, maybe prefilled in passwords, etc, so a temporary profile may cause extra work for the tester.

    And this isn't just for Firefox, it would apply to IE and Chrome as well.

    The simple act of not clearing browser cache regardless of which browser is being used can ruin the whole recording especially if existing cookies are not cleared

    If implemented, the option to clear browser cache including cookies should be set to True by default

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified.

    There is a workaround while running on Firefox by creating temporary profiles. If this not an acceptable workaround, we can schedule a call to discuss more

    Attachment (Description): a check box somewhere on this dialog to delete history would be ideal
