Firefox extension IETab and IE8 related bug

Recommended Posts

I've found a bug upon upgrading to IE8 in Vista (64-bit). It appears that IE8 stores cookies in the directory C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files. However, if you're using Firefox with the IE Tab extension (http://ietab.mozdev.org/), IETab cookies are being stored in the directory C:\[username]\Brian\AppData\Local\Temp\Cookies.


CCleaner is deleting cookies that are stored in C:\[username]\Brian\AppData\Local\Temp\Cookies. For example, if you log into Netflix using IE8 and save the login information, when you close IE8, run CC, and then restart IE8, the Netflix login cookie will still be there (assuming you've set CC to keep the Netflix cookie of course). However, if you log into Netflix using Firefox IETab, close Firefox, run CC, and then restart Firefox, the Netflix login cookie will be removed and you'll have to enter your login information again.


I'm guessing this is really more of a problem with IETab than CC, so I've posted this bug at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.ph...386345#p6386345 as well. However, wanted to post here in case anyone is having problems.

You can have CCleaner configured with Cookies to Keep, this is how:

1. Start CCleaner, then go into Options->Cookies.

2. On the left you'll see Cookies to Delete, now highlight what you want to keep and press the button -> to move them into Cookies to Keep.




If the above instructions don't work and your cookies are still being removed you can have CCleaner ignore your whole cookies folder, although you'll then have to manage and delete cookies via your web browser.


To ignore your cookies folder:

1. In Windows enable the view of Hidden Files and Folders.

2. Start CCleaner then go into Options->Exclude, click Add Folder, then browse to your cookies folder.

3. In Windows disable the view of Hidden Files and Folders.
