How can I delete cache and cookies, but keep history, every time I close Firefox?

Under Privacy and Security I have Firefox set to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' with no exceptions listed.

When I close and reopen Firefox, the cookies are correctly deleted, but the cache is not. I have to manually go into this setting to delete them. This also happens if I go to the menu bar setting of 'history/clear recent history'.

I want to keep my history of where I've been, but clear clear cookies and the cache every time close.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for a browser that bills itself as being privacy oriented, but I don't see how to do this. Doing banking, I have to manually go into Privacy each time to get this done to clear the site.

From looking at previous answers to this question it seems the current way Firefox is designed this is "not a bug, but a feature".

Using Firefox 99.0 on a 2017 Imac.

I wanted to move my FF profile from my old PC (Firefox ESR for Windows XP SP3 32 bit 52.9?) to my new PC where I installed Firefox ESR 91.11 64 bit.

Moving the profile was no problem. I simply copied it on an USB-Stick and moved it to the profile folder of the new installation.

Starting FF works and it remembers all old links, settings and usernames for the sites I visited - BUT it does not store any password I enter after having moved the profile.

Following that last update to Firefox, the Facebook game Criminal Case stopped working properly. When certain things are done in the game the screen in the game is shrunk and doesn't occupy all the space it should do. When this happens, none of the buttons on that screen in the game work. In the attached image, the in-game screen should occupy all the black area that surrounds it.

Other players of the game have reported similar problems when using Firefox. I am currently playing the game successfully in Opera GX browser.

Gap to the left of tabs when menu bar is hidden/unchecked

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

This appeared on laptop; 'Your Browser Is Being Managed By Your Organization' with a value of "true", and after reading about it I'm still lost. I don't see where Avast is on my laptop and don't feel I need another controller of my browser. Under Documentation , AppUpdatePin it say "Prevent Firefox from being undated beyond the specified version". And a few lines start with DiableFirefox... Seems it's allowing somethings for Chrome and Google. I know Microsoft keeps trying to take over my laptop and tries to install Edge, which should be illegal. I'd love to copy and send all this page to Firefox for their review. If I don't need this how do I get rid of it?

Below this space it says, "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system." When I click on show it has Firefox version and Operating system, with "optional" beside each and nothing showing for either?

I've noticed that with Firefox 102 when I download an exe file, in this case Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe it is renaming it to Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe.bin.

Why is that happening now? I know the "potential risk" or downloading an .exe file but shouldn't it ask or at least warn you instead of just deciding to rename it

I didn't see a setting to disable this "feature". Is there one?

Thanks

Hi everybody, I never cleared my browsing history so far, because I often need to know which websites I already visited when I perform a research on Google. Having the previously visited URLs shown in a different colour is useful for my work.

However, I am wondering whether this huge amount of data could affect the browser speed and memory usage. More specifically, I have a few questions:

1) Out of curiosity, in which file of Firefox installation folder the history is saved, and where can I find it? 2) Do you think it is possible to clear ALL the browsing history, except for one specific URL? 3) Could a cluttered browsing history file affect negatively my browser performance?

Many thanks in advance for your help, Elisa
