Why Cookies and Site Data are not completely deleting every time I close Firefox?

Hi. I am using Firefox for years, mainly due to it's increased security and privacy settings it provides. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have set Firefox in Privacy & Security tab to Strict Tracking Protection and to Never remember history. The problem is that, when I close and reopen Firefox, NOT all cached content gets deleted automatically!

Please see my screenshot of Cookies and Site Data section. You will see that there is 1.1MB of Cached Web Content which is not deleted. If I don't manually delete this content (e.g. every week), the size of it gets grow to a very big number of MB (400-500MB).

Why Firefox is not deleting the Cached Web Content automatically since I told it explicitly to do it by choosing Never remember history?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. This happens in all of my PCs..

Is this a Bug?

I'm not sure when lockwise went from an optional add on to "you know what I'm just going to run myself anyway" but I already have a password manager and I want to disable Lockwise. Every article or help post I find insists Lockwise is an Addon but it's not in that list and when i go to the Logins & Passwords tab I can see what Lockwise is doing but I can't do anything about it let alone switch it off.

I've been using Lastpass for years and I'm more than happy with it and I find Lockwise competing with Lastpass and pushing itself to the front of the queu when entering passwords on sites and I don't want that.

How do I disable it please?

I won't check a box that opts me into observational and INTERVENTIONAL studies that I won't even be aware that I'm in since I don't look every 5 minutes at the settings and may do things like the evil sort of one fb ? did that changed your emotions.

That's a great example of why I moved to Firefox from Chrome and am wary of Facebook.

I'd be more than happy to check a box that says: "Please offer me any/all studies I may be eligible for including add'l questions to see if I'm eligible, with a reasonable stab at assent (not even informed consent). And of course whether data is anonymous (truly, as in after the study even if you wanted to you couldn't figure out which person was which), or not. Not anonymous may be fine....depending on the study. My very best, really, you're great....AND I'd be happy to discuss, advise (see below)...my 'toolbox' isn't simply biomedical. Darren


(Just me being pedantic now ignore this as you wish: And you say "study" ... I'm a researcher (sometimes)...IRB, grants, peer review, publications. Research is the "creation of generalizable knowledge." Is that what you're doing? I suspect you're doing more "quality improvement" where you figure out what works better for you...and SOMETIMES that is generalizeable knowledge (i.e., certain colors make people happy in every browser not Firefox specific), but do you publish it as peer reviewed research? Now, it's TOTALLY FINE if you don't and it's QI....but would specify that and not call it studies...call it...evaluating improvements or whatever. The use of the word 'study' and 'research' drive me nuts since when we talk to people about actual 'studies' and 'research' they conflate that with marketing evaluations of what makes us by more or which candidate we're interested in or how to sell things to us.)

Hi!

I'm representing LiveJournal and I'd like to clarify the recent security concerns.

We consider security our main priority and are constantly paying particular attention to it when developing new features and updating old ones. Within the past 8 years we have:

- switched to HTTPS for all pages; - improved password storage mechanics; - implemented suspicious activity detecting system which tracks and block suspicious logins; - maintained monitoring for vulnerabilities both within LiveJournal's code and third-party software employed by us; - recommended all of our users to update their passwords at least once per 6 months and to use different passwords for different services; - we have also disabled passwords that haven't been updated for several years.

You may find the details in official LJ new channel - https://news.livejournal.com/155859.html

We are keeping track of the information distributed in the Internet and want our users to feel safe. That’s why we kindly ask you to stop showing security alert to Firefox browser users about their LiveJournal accounts security.

Thank you.

Hello,

I trust my email finds you well.

On two occasions recently I googled something and when I click on the page I wish to visit, a popup appears with celebrations raining from the top of the screen and then a survey follows.

Please see the images I uploaded here.

Is this a virus / malware or legit or a popup that got past ad-block plus?

Looking forward to hearing from you. Schalk

Hi, I'm surprised there is no feature to lock thunderbird with a password so a theft or someone who is walking by to my unlocked computer, can just go on and read my e-mails.

Since the last update, none of the available add-ons are compatible any longer.

This is a bit frustrating.

Thanks for improving thunderbird!

Hi, I am visiting a site from my favorites and suddenly I am greeted with a red page urging me that this site has dangerous content and I should leave it? Why is that? There is an option to ignore the risk but I want this red screen disabled and not to see it again. How can I disable it and possibly even delete it from my computer?

In the settings I have unchecked this: Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection Block dangerous and deceptive content

but still get the error. How can I disable this stupid page!
