Clean Browser cookies when cleaning browser


jubalante

Recommended Posts

Upon closing my browser CC "cleans" the browser. However, it does not clean cookies accumulated by the browser.  While I want to retain the "Cookies to Keep",  it would really be nice not to have to immediately run CC to delete "Cookies on Computer".  When cleaning the browser, why not have the option to include cleaning "Cookies on Computer" but retain "Cookies to Keep"?   That's one enhancement (option) I would really appreciate!!!

All I can say is it's supposed to do cookies too, and, in my experience, it does.

So lets start with what browser.

 

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

In past versions I could check an option to delete cookies upon closure of  the browser.  I found this extremely useful. Now, running v 5.43.6522 (64bit) I can no longer find that option. And upon closing the browser (Firefox v 60.0.1) the cookies remain. This means I have to open CCleaner and go to Options/Cookies and highlight all cookies to delete them. EXTRA WORK that is unnecessary if the previous option had been retained. If that option is in this version and I have missed it I apologize. If it's not in the present version, I certainly wish it was restored in future versions.

I've never seen that option in CCleaner, - how would CCleaner be supposed to know that you have closed your browser?

There is an option to do this in Firefox itself, which is maybe what you are remembering?

In Firefox go to Tools> Options> Privacy & Security. (If you can't see the Tools menu then just type 'about:preferences' into the address bar).

The second and third sections there allow you to set if Firefox will keep or delete your History & Cookies when you close it.
There is an Exceptions button for cookies that you want it to keep - you will have to put the same exceptions in CCleaner (on unselect firefox cookies in CCleaner) otherwise CC will wipe them when you do run it.

I believe you're talking about monitoring which watches for browser closure.  What are your settings in options>monitoring?

I forgot that the monitoring had a browser monitoring option. (Only available in the pro version).

Found the problem.  Under the options for Firefox options in CC the delete cookies box was unchecked. Checked it (previously told cc to monitor the browser and clean when closed) and it cleans the browser and deletes the cookies.  Thanks nukecad.

Ah, so simple that we had assumed that you would have already checked that that was checked.

Good to hear it was easy to get it back how you want.
