I want Firefox to delete all data, which means cookies and site data, when I close all Firefox's windows. But since I migrated to win10, I've been experiencing a trouble.
Back in my win7 environment, things were working as intended.
I went to "about:preferences#privacy". Then on "Cookies and Site Data" section, I ticked "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed." And on "History" section, I chose "Firefox will Use custom settings for history". And I ticked "Clear history when Firefox closes". Also I ticked all boxes on "Settings for Clearing History" window.
All data seemed deleted when I closed Firefox back then.
But things were changed in a weird way.
The settings on "History" section is working but I've noticed some leftovers. All cookies are gone and you're logged out, but I noticed that some sites STILL have some settings. A example is "tenki.jp", which is a weather forecast page. I opened a page of a location, and close Firefox, and start Firefox, and went to the top page, but it still remembers the location which I checked earlier.
The setting on "Coolies and Site Data" section is worse. It works, but not in the intended way. I opened a page of a location on the weather forecast site, and went to the top page, it of-course remembered the location. But I opened the top page on ANOTHER TAB, it forgets the location. It seems like Firefox shares cookies and log-in information between tabs, but don't shares this sort of data when the setting is ticked.
I don't understand what is going on. All I know is that some sites uses "that sort of data", which is not cookies and site data apparently, to store site settings, and Firefox can't handle them well.
If you know a solution, please let me know.
I'm using 72.0.2 64bit on Windows 10 Pro 64bit Japanese.
