ESR 17 Clear cache

I'm using Firefox community ESR 17.0.9 edition. I lockeddown some settings thru a GPO by using the ADMX templates.
I recieved a question from our users to clear the cache at browser exit. I found follwing setting :
privacy.clearOnShutdown.cache. Is this enough? I'm not sure.

I tested my installation by setting everything thru the GUI Tools --> option --> Privacy ... see my attached image.
My question is where are the settings like the dropdown box in History --> FireFoxESR will: ?
When i activate everything like in the image Cache will be cleared on exit. Can anyone explain what can be done or is it implicitly activated by only setting privacy.clearOnShutdown.cache and the other 8 options ???

I run in to the same issue.
Does anyone have a solution yet?

I can't find the correct policy setting, The solution seems to be in prefs.js... I tried to put these settings in mozilla.cfg, but that doesn't work :)
