How to efficiently clear Cookies and History, yet preserve manually pinned Top Sites?

Hi everyone,

Clearing all cookies and history is something that I frequently do. Unfortunately, doing so also removes all Top Sites that I may have manually pinned in new tab (Firefox Home).

Do you know of an efficient way to prevent that to happen when clearing absolutely all the rest? Just preserve the pinned tabs, nothing else.

I know that in about:config, they also have they special entry: browser.newtabpage.pinned, and I think it does kind of make sense to see these manually pinned tabs more as bookmarks than as temporary cookies, really.

Thanks for your time :)

I have the option to restore previous tabs set correctly. I have exited and reopened Firefox twice and neither time did it open my previous tabs. The second time, I opened the 3 tabs I could remember from my previous session, checked to make sure the option was set correctly, yet when I exited and opened Firefox, none of my tabs showed. And my history is empty. How can I keep this from happening in the future?

I just saw on my Firefox that I have the History saved from October 2018. Even if I delete for the last hour, the last week or All, nothing changed, everything is still there, saved. I try to change some settings like to delete the history everytime I closed Firefox, but the history is always there. I tried to delete site by site on the History and I'm not able to delete anything. Firefox is up to date. Thank you
