Suppressing unsaved-packets prompt

Years ago, possibly when it was Ethereal, one wasn't prompted to save the current capture before re/starting another capture. Is there any way to get this behavior back? I know I could screw up and lose a capture this way, but I think that's a remote possibility and would like the ability to turn this off.

Thank you so much! I looked over those preferences but must have missed it.
