I found a German-local thread that discusses the missing check box:
<http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=de&forumId

Even when you manually add the "privacy.sanitize.promptOnSanitize"
setting under about:config and set it to True, it still doesn't work.

Based on the referenced bug fix,
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469158>
... it looks like the developers consciously decided to ignore the
reasonably possible use case that would require that check box.
