Is CCleaner keeping cookies from portable browsers?


Recommended Posts

I use portable browsers (Pale Moon, Slim Browser and SlimJet). In SlimBrowser and SlimJet I use cookie protection add-ons. For Pale Moon such a thing does not exist so I need to keep all cookies, or delete all cookies manually to keep those I want to preserve.

Before working CCleaner I need to know whether it will delete the cookies from the portable browsers, and if so, how to protect some of them. In the cookies section of the settings I find only cookies which are associated to the installed browsers (Internet Explorer plus two versions of Edge) - even though I know positively that most of these websites whose cookies are in the list - for example Facebook and Dr Windows - I have never used with any of these installed browsers.

The 3 Microsoft browser are listed under the 'Windows' Tab in CCleaners Custom Clean.

Other Browsers that you have installed are listed under the 'Applications' tab when you click on it.

For example Firefox here:

If the browsers are Chromium based then their cookies may be seen as Chrome cookies.

You can tell Custom Clean (but not Health Check) if you want particular cookies to be left alone, or if you want all cookies to be left alone, see this article:

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

If they're portable you'll need to use customlocation

Use CHROME insted of FIREFOX in the instructions for chrome based browsers

 

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.
