    Cookies never covered flash cookies did it,? those were always covered by flash under media on the second tab iirc.

    Chromium has its own special Flash integration, so the Flash cookies (and the cache) are stored in the user profile of the browser. The attached screenshot shows the cleaning of Google Chrome Flash cookies.


  2. Thanks for adding Edge Chromium.

    One thing I noticed: "Cookies" does not remove Flash Cookies anymore. (Folder: "...\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects")

    Since the browser is based on Chromium, it should be possible to add the missing rules without any problems.


    Edit: This also applies to Edge Chromium: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/54517-cookies-local-storageleveldb/

    RegKey2 for this cleaning routine can't remove anything! It also doesn't matter if CCleaner is ran as admin, or if the registry location is modified with full priveleges it still doesn't work. What does however work is manually deleting old junk from that registry location.

    Thanks for the information. However, I cannot confirm it. RegKey2 completely removes the registry key "Store" from my system.

  4. CCleaner's entry "Cookies" for Google Chrome, Chromium browsers and Opera cleans the LevelDB of the folder "User Data\*\Local Storage\", but leaves many traces. The main LevelDB file *.log will be cleaned, but the clean-up process unfortunately creates new *.ldb files with all the previous data from the *.log file! The MANIFEST-* file then also contains traces of visited websites!

    Please check if you can optimize this. Thank you!

    Sticky Password does not like [Local Storage *] for Chrome.

    I strongly suspect that Edge Chromium will have to have the Leveldb key removed as well when it is released in final form and Sticky Password recognizes it as a valid browser.  In test mode, Sticky Password is duped into thinking it is running in a valid browser.

    Thank you very much for your quick reply and the information.

    Too bad it's still affecting extensions. Then we should better not include the entries in Winapp2.ini.

    Really, an entry to delete "old Firefox data" stored on the desktop of all places.:lol: Are we that lazy? Surely that's not a difficult thing to see and delete.

    It's not like it's deeply hidden on the system unbeknownst to end-users, and since it has to be selected during uninstall of Firefox for it to even be created it could easily backfire having CCleaner delete it.

    I guess he requested the entry because many people just overlook the folder because of the many icons on their desktop. It will also be a Winapp3.ini entry, as it deletes a potentially important backup folder.

  6. New entries:

    CCleaner's built-in entry "Cookies" tries to clean up the LevelDB, but leaves many traces. The main LevelDB file *.log will be cleaned, but the clean-up process unfortunately creates new *.ldb files with all the previous data of the *.log file. The MANIFEST file also contains traces of visited websites.

    A request: Could someone please test if this affects installed extensions? Thank you very much!

    If Firefox Old Data is basically the same structure as %appdata%\mozilla\profiles then why not have copies of all the firefox entries and just do ...

    IMHO that's too much for a simple backup folder. The folder only exists if Firefox had serious problems or if you manually clicked on "Refresh Firefox". Since the content does not change after creation, the entries would only clean the folder once. The folder is used to transfer your profile data to a new Firefox profile. After that you can usually delete the folder.

    I would assume that if there were multiple "%userprofile%\Desktop\Old Firefox Data\" that it would be okay to just have

    "%userprofile%\Desktop\Old Firefox Data *\" ...

    New Winapp3.ini entry:

    [Firefox Old Data *]
    Section=Dangerous Firefox
    Warning=The folders are created as part of the "Refresh Firefox" process and can contain important data.
    FileKey1=%UserProfile%\Desktop\Old Firefox Data*|*.*|REMOVESELF

    A lot of FireFox users have %userprofile%\Desktop\Old Firefox Data\ and I think it would be nice if there was an entry that would clean this and similar named folders. 

    Please provide the entry or at least the different folder names. Thanks!

    10 hours ago, Winapp2.ini said:

    Should definitely include a warning alongside this if one is created; this folder is typically created as part of the "refresh firefox" process and can contain important data. It's also optionally created when uninstalling firefox as a profile backup

    Maybe we should add the entry to the Winapp3.ini then.

    No, it does not appear to have any negative affect on Edge Chromium.  Works okay as far as I can tell.

    Great, thank you very much for your reply and testing.

    Sync data is being saved in SyncData.sqlite3 file.

    Ok, we already know that, but there must be a reason why the LevelDB is always there. So I searched the web and found the following developer document: https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/sync/unified-sync-and-storage-overview. They are talking about different models that use either only the SQLite and/or also the LevelDB. Therefore, the LevelDB also seems to store sync (meta)data. Does it break Chrome if you use "%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Sync Data|*.*|RECURSE"?

    @siliconman01: What is your experience? Does it break the Chromium-based Edge if you use "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Edge*\User Data\*\Sync Data|*.*|RECURSE"?

    New Entries ...

    [Sync Data *] ...
    FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Sync Data|SyncData.sqlite3 ...

    Shall we add "*\Sync Data\LevelDB|*.*" as in siliconman01's entry for the Chromium-based Edge? If so, then I think we can also use "*\Sync Data|*.*|RECURSE" as a single FileKey, right?

    Your recommended merge is perfectly okay.  Sure glad that you examine and recommend our entries so that Winapp2.ini will be most efficient. 

    Great! :) Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

    [SGX Default_Error_Stack Message *]

    Would it be okay with you if we add the FileKey to the entry [Intel Logs *]?

    [Dell SupportAssistAgent *]

    Are there important log files? Otherwise we could merge FileKey3 to 7:
