Why doesn't "Delete cookies when Firefox is closed" also delete the Cache?

Firefox's Clear Data control allows you to clear both Cookies AND the Cache. This makes perfect sense, since both of these things can be used to identify/track people.

But from what I can tell, if you enable the option Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed, this doesn't clear the Cache, only Cookies?

In fact, the only way to clear the Cache at restart is to dig deep into the Clear history when Firefox closes settings, which few people would know to look in.

So, correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't this giving users a false sense of security? They think all the Cookies will be deleted when they open Firefox, but actually the Cache is still there, allowing them to be easily identified?

Personally, I'm less concerned about cookies because they are opt-in (here in the UK). But as for being tracked via the cache, we have no say in that, so that's what I'm more concerned about.

Just received a supposed Firefox Update Marked "Important Firefox update available. Click "Install" to continue" Yet when I click the Install I get a Warning " You are attempting to install an add-on from 'performoverlyoriginalapplication.icu. Make sure you trust this site before continuing" Is this a legitimate Firefox update, and IF IT IS - why do I get that warning from Firefox. I do NOT know, so therefore can NOT "trust" performoverlyoriginalapplication.icu. Can someone who knows this subject better PLEASE advise whethere this is a legitimate update for Firefox and can they be trusted. Also IF that is the caes why does Firefox send me a "warning"???? Thanks for your help.

This is Firefox 82.0 (64-bit) for Apple Macintosh. No matter what I do, i cannot get Firefox browser to NOT STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I exit the browser, start the browser back up and cookies, site data, and cache are ALWAYS still there n matter what my privacy settings are. My expectation is that I want Firefox to AUTOMATICALLY ''''NEVER'''' STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I also want FireFox to AUTOMATICALLY ALWAYS START in private browsing mode.

What settings do I change in order to NEVER have cookies, site data, and cache ever stored and to always automatically start my browser session in Private mode?

The settings as displayed in my attachment do not work and have never worked.

Is there a solution to this?

This identical message is has been sent to Webroot support.

There are several websites which I visit on a daily basis both at home and work. At home and work I regularly go to Amazon and Google. At home I go to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and others. I use Firefox at home and work. Webroot Internet Security Plus v9.0.29.52 is being used at home and a corporate version of Webroot is being used at work. Tonight I started the home computer up and found that Amazon required login credentials. I COPIED the login information from the Firefox "Saved Logins..." screen to log into Amazon. Instagram, et al. seemed to access fine. I performed a complete Webroot scan of my computer and one "threat" was discovered, but no information about this "threat" could be found. I then just went back to Webroot to get the version number for this complaint and it doesn't even recognize the fact that I performed a manual scan an hour ago. It thinks the last scan was 22 hours ago and it only took one second when in fact the LAST scan took over six minutes!

In order to author this complaint, I had to restart Firefox. Currently Amazon is the only website that has retained login information. All others - Google, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr AGAIN require logins! AGAIN, I can go to the saved logins within Firefox, COPY the credential information and PASTE it into the appropriate fields in the appropriate website and I'm logged back in...for now.

PLEASE explain to me how this information is continually being wiped clean and if Webroot isn't doing it, then what is, since Webroot is telling me my system is clean.

Thank you.

I had an issue with a self hosted website's self signed cert and the code it gave, it recommended I go to

Preferences > Privacy & Security > View Certificates > Authorities

and delete the offending trust. I couldn't find which trust it was I needed to delete, so I just deleted them all, assuming it would reverify valid ones later on, and the broken one would be fixed.

Now I can't access any website. Not even google.

How can I just reset all my SSL settings without resetting firefox entirely?

Firefox 81.0.1 (32-bit)

Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago.

Now whenever I go to a website which requires as login password it asks me for it every time whereas previously it just automatically logged me in.

Even more annoying is that the login boxes are already populated with old login details. However these are not for the most recent login details (username/password).

How do I fix this?

Hi, I rarely use Firefox and on this PC I only access websites for work and have full antivirus since PC installation.

See attached screenshots...

Since few days ago Firefox suddenly started being slow and on some websites like www.3dcontentcentral.com (a 3D CAD website) when I type a search instead of providing results practically immediately as it did until a few days ago, the following happes:

1) it takes ages to get the results

2) in the bar at the bottom left of Firefox (where it shows what Firefox is doing in real time) it shows "transferring to...." and it scrolls through MANY different websites which have nothing to do with the website I am on (i.e. 3dcontentcentral.com), such websites includ Facebook and others with random characters. That does not happen with any other browser. AND I never accessed Facebook from this browser anyway and 3dcontentsentral.com has no reason to connect to Facebook or the other websites shown att he bottom.

That happens even if I run Firefox with ad-ons disabled. Only Adons I have are Duck-Duck and Ad-Block Plus

BTW, the only thing I have done was install duck-duck few days ago but the idea of duck duck. If anything that should have made the system more secure not less... :o

As mentioned I am always extremely careful to never click on any unknown or even remotely suspiscious website and aso have VPN and full business antivirus.

What is going on?

Thank you for all feedback :)

Greetings Firefox Community,

I work from home as a warranty administrator for Mazda, Honda, Toyota and Volkswagen. They all seem to use either IE11 or Chrome as their online platform. When I use Firefox I can access all of the log in screens, however when I need to go to different pages Firefox does not allow me to go any further. I have no idea how to change the compatibility settings in Firefox. In IE11 I simply go to tools and then Comparability Settings and enter the page I need to access. In Chrome I can cross platform with no problem. I would rather stay with Firefox. Any suggestions will help.

Kind regards Gerry
