Remove site specific local data

I am using the latest version of Firefox on my Samsung Android phone. Is there a way to remove local data for a particular site?

Hi

If you swipe from right to left on the Firefox for Android home screen, you should see the History panel that shows the web sites that you have visited recently. Long press on the one that you wish to delete and select Remove to remove it from the devices history.

Thanks but you misunderstood my question. I am after a way to delete local site data that's in the "local storage". This is something like cookies I believe. I can do this on the desktop but in Firefox Android the only way I found is a global clear all privacy data option. What I want is to remove all data for a particular site only.

Hi

Yes, the method I have outlined allows you to select a single site and remove its history.

That only removes my browsing history based on what I saw in Firefox. What I want is not that. I want to remove the privacy data, something called "offline web site data" in the clear privacy data section. Right now, the only way to do that is to remove all privacy data. What I want is to remove privacy data for a particular site only. Note: privacy data, *not* browsing history.

Hi

I believe the approach I have described removes all history for the specified site.

It is not possible to remove local storage data for only one site. You would need to use the clear private data option in the settings.
