If you go to the options of the extension you can tell it to bypass the trash.

Yes this is indeed unfortunate

I took a look at doing it before I discovered the extension I mentioned. I then
found that Empty Trash code is spread over quite some files, so I found
implementing Empty Junk quite daunting. The code of the extension is not that
difficult, but finding out what you now should add / change things in the
mozilla code seems not that easy for somebody not to familiar with the mozilla
code.
