Not Working: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed

I have Firefox set to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" but it doesn't do what it says it will. Cookies are deleted, but the cache remains. I want to keep a history of the sites I've visited, but have no cookies or cache saved when I close- see images below.

The first is how I have it set for Firefox when I close. The second is an example when I reopen Firefox - the cache is still there. I never have any exceptions set up and don't need to.

When I ask this question on this forum all I get is a response that looks like its by a bot. It repeats the instructions for clearing the cache that do not work that I already know, but never address my actual issue.

Is this a feature that just doesn't work, and is ignored by Firefox, even though their entire rap is that they have more privacy oriented than other browsers? Privacy washing perhaps?

Or is there some setting I am missing?

For most extensions, there is an option to enable them in private windows; for both Multi-Account Containers and Temporary Containers, however, they cannot be used in private tabs with no option to allow them to. Is there any reason for this, and any way I can bypass the missing toggle?

I personally know of 5 people, including myself that have had nothing but issues with the latest update to Firefox, from crashing, not being able to type, not being able to reply to emails, to not being able to use it at all. Mine also didn't save any of my passwords or saved sites :(

I have tried for 2 days to find some way to contact Firefox, but getting absolutely no help.

If anyone knows what's going on or how to fix it on all these computers I'd really appreciate it.

I'm unable to remove the settings and changes of the Extension I want to reset the Extension Because it does not work well because of settings

ITS VPN its show :"with login" But it's been stuck like this for days I tried deleting the Extension and reinstalling But it's still stuck like that what did I do:

I wrote my email in the Extension and clicked Log in

And since then it's stuck like that


I do not want to remove all Extension or reset all firefox I just want to fix this specific Extension

I would love to know where data of each Extension is stored

That way I can delete the specific data of this Extension

Recently, sites that use semi-colons instead of ampersands in their URLs have stopped working in Firefox 99.0.1 for me.

I suspect an add-on may have been recently updated, since those sites still work when I run them in a new private window. Is there an easy way to track down which add-on might be rewriting the URL?

How to create and try a spell-checker of a new language?

I am working an open source dictionary project for a language that isn't yet listed on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/ Specifically it is the Ladino (Judeo-Espanyol) language using the Latin abc, though the specific language probably does not matter.

I would like to be able to create the necessary files to make it easy for others to install and use this add-on. (and get it listed on that page) I would also like to be able to try it in my browser (running on Linux btw) before I submit it to Mozilla.

If I understand it correctly first I need to create the .dic and .aff files used by hunspell. I've done this. I can use the spell-checker on the command line.

Is that correct? What now? How do I package these files so I can install them locally? How do I submit it to Mozilla? And a bit later: how will I be able to update the version served by Mozilla?

BTW the source of the project is here: https://github.com/szabgab/ladino-diksionaryo-data/

I hate your new email address blocker!! All I want is for you to turn it off. I was using Firefox 100% of the time till you started blocking me from entering email address, I use Firefox for work and some times I have to enter clients email address into forms and your new blocker won't let me enter them. So, I have to log out of Firefox and open Google Chrome to be able to fill out the forms where I have to enter clients email address. Please either discontinue the use of this blocker or tell me how to turn it off OR I will have to start using Google Chrome 100% of the time.

Thanks,

It's hard to be polite because of my major frustration with these issues which have been going on way to long...almost a year. It started with an "upgrade"....went backwards not forward in function...when certain emails from places I've subscribed to came thru with no images, just verbal highlights. Clicking on those links to read more ended up with the New Tab thing moving back and forth forever and then I get the note "Secure Connection Failed:PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. It did this, the first time, for almost two months and then suddenly cured itself. Next time an upgrade happened I was back to square one. Time line for self fix was a bit shorter, but well over a month. Ditto several more times. I did all the looking and reading and nothing offered helped resolve this issue. More recently...the last month or so...I get ZERO images on incoming emails, regardless who, what, when sends them. For instance, I got a poster, announcing an upcoming art show. I got nothing but blank boxes. Having had this issue with other emails, I've learned that I have to create a forwarded email in order to see any images. I'm still dealing with the inability to open articles, web sites, etc, from and email or other site I'm looking at that may have something of interest. I'm about to pull the plug on FoxFire if this keeps up!!!!
