Cookies not being saved

Recommended Posts

Ever since my first run of CCleaner, cookies are not being saved in mozilla firefox after it closes. I checked to see all settings were enabled and they seem fine, reinstalled the browser, but everything seems the same. I uninstalled CCleaner and they were still being deleted. It's not on auto run.

 

thanks for your help,

Are you choosing in CCleaner, options> cookies and highlighting the ones you want to keep in the delete column and using the arrow in the middle to send them over to the keep column?

Go to Tools>Options in Firefox, go to the privacy section and check the box "Always clear private data when I close Firefox" isn't ticked.

unticked... very strange, it could be some other application but it started right when i installed this.

Have you got any cookie handling extensions installed in Firefox?

yeah, add-n-edit cookies. I removed it and the problem persists. It is the same in internet explorer too i discovered.

If as you say, they are being deleted even when CCleaner is not installed, perhaps it is time to check settings on your firewall and antivrus to see if either is deleting them before they are being stored.

 

What do you use?

yeah that's what i was thinking. I have AVG Free and Kerio 2.1 PF, disabling them doesn't make a difference. Hrmm..

Do you use any other security/cleaning utilities (even if they seem unrelated) they might be worth listing....

Nope. I had an old version of ad-aware which I hadn't used in years. Deleting it changed nothing.

 

Solved: my firefox app data folder had 9,999 files (named cookies[1-9999].txt). I deleted them, and now it's working fine. I don't know what created this files, but a bug in somebody's program i suspect.

 

My mistake, ie was saving my cookies -- i hadn't checked properly.

 

Glad this is cleared up!

 

Thanks for your support, it's appreciated,
