Trackers Not Completely Cleaned - Firefox

@harry2021

I've moved your post to it's own thread because yours is about Firefox not Chrome, so the answer is probably different.

(Plus it can get confusing giving different people answers about different browsers in the same thread).

For others reading- This is related the 'Privacy' section of health check not removing all 'Trackers'.
The article harry 2021 mentions is this one: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/52668-tracking-files/?tab=comments#comment-300043

 

Could you give us more details of what you are seeing with the 'Trackers' in Health Check?
ie, How many are not being cleaned, and if you click on 'Privacy' does it say that the uncleaned ones are Temporary internet files or Cookies, or both?

Firefox has just changed the way that it handles cookies which may be related to what you are seeing:

We've not seen anyone else report a problem with this change to Firefox yet; but someone has to be first to report any problem.

I have Firefox on this laptop so will have a see what Health Check is doing for me.

Sorry, I thought this was about cleaning (or not cleaning) of  'Trackers' in Health Check?

Which could well be the changes that they made in Firefox v86, I've not had time to have a look/play around yet.
(I wrote my own cleaner for Firefox so may need to make some changes to that).

Are you saying that after switching browsers the 'Trackers' have now been cleaned?

Just to note that the changes to Firefox cookies have made no difference to CCleaner that I can see, and CCleaner is still removing them as before.
