I am frequently needing to clear the Cached web content, when doing development work on a website. I always need to remember to remove the check mark from the Cookies box. However, I sometimes forget and loose dozens of log-in cookies and need to reset them, which is a big pain.

I was unable to find anything in the Firefox Advance Configuration settings. In Chromium and Chrome browsers, only the Cached images and files box is set with a check mark. If I cannot change the default for Cookies, this is reason enough for me to switch browsers, despite using Firefox for many years.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Instead of Clear Data, use Clear Recent History (clt-shft-del). The pop-up remembers your selection(s) from previous use. In your case, select Cache only.

Hi Terry, With the keyboard shortcut and only the Cache selected and saved, this should work for me. Thank you.
