How is Zillow retaining optimized info when I've cleared cache, cookies, history and restarted?

Posted

How is Zillow retaining optimized info when I've cleared cache, cookies, history and restarted? I've done everything I can to get to a neutral start and it's a huge pet peeve because it laughs in the face of the "clear cookies and cache" tool that I rely on. I do have several of their pages bookmarked - is this where it is drawing from - even after I've cleared all data, excepting bookmarks, and restarted? Is neutral browsing even possible now? Thank you in advance, for helpful info!

You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.

Thank you so much, I will use that from now on. So is clearing cookies and cache alone now useless?
