Cookies, logins, closing tabs question
Yes, I know I was only just complaining about all my logins being lost when I start firefox. This is (to me) a different question.
Ok, I get it, security is important and remaining logged in is usually a good idea. But as I am one person and it is my machine......
But there is a twist to this.
Places like shops / e-bay / amazon / etc.....
I log into them, do my stuff, and close the tab/window.
The log ins are kept.
(Side story) I seldom / never "quit" Firefox. As is, I turn on the machine. If/when needed I start firefox and that's that. When I'm done I just shut down the machine. (firefox still "running".)
Next time I turn on and start firefox, things are as I left them.
That is the ideal situation for me.
I've since discovered that there are a few ways to "exit" firefox.
FILE/QUIT quits firefox. Menu/QUIT does the same. But if I go through and close the windows: that's a whole other story. Likewise if I go out of firefox, RMB on the icon and say QUIT.
So, how do I make sure that if/when I close a tab (I'll keep it at that level as that is what is logged into the site, not necessarily the window) the cookies are wiped?
In the settings/privacy / TRACKING I have CUSTOM set, with all the boxes ticked. DO NOT TRACK is set to ALWAYS Alas (due to local reasons) I have Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode set.
What am I missing? Thanks in advance.
