17.0.1 retains cookies with Optons >> Privacy >> Always User Private Browing Mode Selected.

Posted

All sessions with secure sites (i.e. Windows Live) are retained after exit. I have tried browser.sessionstore.privacy_level at 0 (as set when selecting "Always Use Private Browsing Mode", 1, and 2, with no change.

Any ideas would be welcomed as this creates risk I am not willing to accept.

Hello justatemp, change the browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred value to 2 (default is 1) and check it again.

thank you
