I cannot find the 'browser.privatebrowsing.autostart' config in recent Firefox Mobile builds (android); I have tried both stock (58) and nightly. Is there a way to emulate this feature?

Firefox for Android does not have this feature as it would result in Firefox clearing the data randomly when Firefox is in the background on Android.

There is a similar feature which will delete data when you select the exit menu item. See documentation at ... ta-on-exit

The other option would be to use Firefox Focus as that browser has some easy options to clear your browsing history.
