If Firefox cares so much about privacy, why is there no way to automatically delete website data upon exit, including the dozens of cookies not related to the sites I’ve visited, like I can do in the Linux and Windows versions? I have to manually go into data management to do so each time, or they never go away. Many of that website data sure does look like tracking company cookies. :-( TIA!

Hi

I recommend that you use the private browsing mode in Firefox for iOS or the Firefox Focus app available from the App store.

Thanks for the suggestion, Paul. Tried that, but many sites don’t work in those ultra private modes. I’m just surprised how many dozens of obtuse cookies and web data remain behind after legit web use. Wish we could “delete on exit” like so many other browsers, Firefox included. I sync Firefox, but will have to continue to use DDGo, which does wipe on exit. Thanks again.
