  1. That's not how I understand the definition, but I'm probably wrong. My understanding is that "form history" is forms on web pages and "search history" is from the search terms entered in the FireFox search box. FireFox uses the expression "remember search and form history" as if search history and form history are two different things that happen to have the same option at the moment. It seems that the problem might be a limitation of FireFox, rather than CCleaner. https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/749922 Thanks. Rob
  2. Firefox 8.0

    Thanks again for your reply. I'm not sure what jumpListCache does, but I'll have a quick look. I've just updated to Firefox 8.0 and have a slightly different problem to the one I had in Firefox 7.0. I've started a new thread about this: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=34340
  3. Not deleting form history in Firefox 7.0

    I've updated to Firefox 8.0 and have a slightly different problem: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=34340
  4. In CCleaner, I have the following options ticked: Internet Cache Internet History Cookies Download History Session Saved Form Information and these options unticked: Site Preferences Saved Passwords Compact Databases In Firefox, I have "remember search and form history" ticked. CCleaner correctly deletes my form history, but also deletes my search history. Could this be corrected in a future version of CCleaner, so that only the form history is cleared when "Saved Form Information" is selected? Edit: I'm running WinXP-Home-SP3 and V3.12.1572 of CCleaner.
  5. Firefox 8.0

    Thanks for your reply. I haven't updated to 8.0 yet, but have had a problem with cleaning 7.0.
  6. Firefox 8.0

    I know that the latest version of CCleaner supports Firefox 8.0 Beta, but does it support the release version of Firefox 8.0, which was released recently? I expected this to already be discussed in the forum, but I can't see it mentioned anywhere. I hope I've posted in the correct section. This isn't really a bug, but I wasn't sure where else to post it.
  7. I have "remember search and form history" ticked in Firefox 7.0.1 and "Saved Form Information" ticked in CCleaner. With these options, I would expect: My search history to be remembered by Firefox and not deleted by CCleaner. My form history to be remembered by Firefox, but deleted by CCleaner. Unless I'm missing something, the opposite seems to be true. My form history is available when I open Firefox, but my search history isn't. I've searched the forum, but can't find anybody else mentioning this. Has anybody else experienced this? I'm using the latest version of CCleaner and WinXP-Home-SP3.
  8. Problems Deleting Cookies in IE8

    I haven't figured out how to stop IE8 from creating the cookies when I open it, but I have figured out how to allow CCleaner to remove them. Export the cookies to cookies.txt. Get IE8 to remove all cookies (including those for favourite sites). Import the cookies from cookies.txt. I then end up with one copy of each cookie whenever I open IE8, which CCleaner can easily delete. I'm not that bothered about the cookies appearing whenever I open IE8, because I only use it once a month to download the monthly security updates. I have IE8 installed on my work PC with what appears to be the same settings, and I don't get these cookies appearing at all.
  9. Office not detected in Applications

    Thanks for clearing things up. If the guys at Piriform are unable to get CCleaner to work with Office 2000, I doubt that I will be able to with a winapp2.ini entry. Thanks for the suggestion though. Should I post a comment in the CCleaner Suggestions subform? Rob
  10. Problems Deleting Cookies in IE8

    Looks like I'm not the only one having problems with the atdmt cookie. http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft...oming-back.html https://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsg...cr=US&sloc= http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6132_102-0.html?threadID=348991 I think I'll just live with it, unless I can get Spybot or SpywareBlaster to block it.
  11. Problems Deleting Cookies in IE8

    Thanks for your help. The cookies are pretty harmless. I would like to find out how to delete them, but don't want to waste your time. The cookies are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files. I do have MSN Messenger installed, but find this problem occurs even when MSN messenger isn't running (which it wasn't in safe mode). Google is my default search provider, but I do have "Live Search" listed as another option. I've also got the Google and Norton toolbars. The Google toolbar is hidden, the Norton one isn't. Thanks again. Rob
  12. Problems Deleting Cookies in IE8

    I wasn't able to delete them in safe mode. I also tried opening a DOS shell, but the DOS shell didn't list the cookies when I used DIR /A. Oh well, I'll just have to live with them.
  13. I hope that I've posted this in the correct place, and that it hasn't already been discussed in a previous thread. When I open IE8, 6 cookies are created straight away: atdmt.com bing.com live.com msn.com windowsmarketplace.com zune.net My homepage is set to "about:blank", so I assume that it's some of the default Microsoft toolbars that are creating the cookies. At first sight, this didn't seem to be a problem - all six appear in CCleaner's "Cookies to Delete" section, and are then not in that section after I've run CCleaner. However, when I looked at the cookies in the Temporary Internet files directory, I found that they're still there, even though they're no longer in CCleaner's "Cookies to Delete" section. I've discovered that when I open IE8, these cookies are created a second time, and appear twice in the Temporary Internet files directory. When I close down IE8 and run CCleaner, CCleaner only removes each of the cookies once, leaving one of each cookie behind. I expect that I can solve this by deleting the cookies manually, but thought that I ought to let people know just in case it's a bug with CCleaner. I only discovered this in the first place because NIS2009 picked up the atdmt.com cookie as a tracking cookie. I hope I've explained myself well enough. Update (2009-10-06 19:17). I've just remembered that I cannot delete the cookies manually using Windows Explorer. I'll try rebooting into Safe Mode to see if that helps.
  14. Office not detected in Applications

    I've got a similiar problem. I've got Office 2000 and FrontPage XP installed on WinXP-Home-SP3. CCleaner lists Office XP under Applications, but doesn't list Office 2000. I only realised this when I noticed that the Office Clipboard in Office 2000 isn't emptied when CCleaner runs. I'm using V2.24.1010, which I think is the latest version.
  15. A different cookie problem

    Looking at the cookies section in the latest version (2.20.920), it says "This includes cookies from all internet browsers and Flash plugins). I assume that all these old cookies that "re-appeared" were Adobe Flash cookies, and CCleaner only started cleaning these cookies when we noticed this problem. In other words, they have always been there, but CCleaner didn't know about them until recently.
