Seeing alot of these "partitionkey=%28http% (then website name visited)" cookies in CCleaner for Firefox.

Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

That is a new feature, so nothing to worry about.

Thank you for the info and link.
