Good day.

I use Firefox 94.0.1 and the latest version of CCleaner. I sometimes use the "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

My situation:

1. In Firefox, settings for clearing history, Cookie, Site settings and Cache boxes are NOT checked.

2. I do some surfing. Then I'll look in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, and I see cookies.

3. *Without closing the browser*, but closing any active tabs and leaving *one* inactive tab (blank) in place.

4. I will, for instance, hit the "Clear Storage Button" - which is set up to clear cookies.

5. Looking back in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, the cookies have been removed.

6. Launching CCleaner, then Options, Cookies: cookie data still shows up!!!

7. I repeat the process, same result.

8. If I then *close* FF and look again at the CCleaner, Options, Cookies, the cookies info is gone.

This is the same result with using either "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

So the situation I have is this:

- I can remove cookie data from FF using an addon.

- As long as I don't close FF completely, CCleaner will still show cookie data.

- Once I close FF completely, then cookie data in CCleaner goes away.

- Please look back at #1 above.

It seems as though an addon can delete cookies in FF, and FF shows they have been deleted, but CCleaner is still picking up some residual data from FF, or so it appears.

Sign me, "Got me boggled".

Thanks for any help.
