CCleaner Firefox Cleaning Integrity Questioned

Recommended Posts

This topic has gone from bringing up an issue with CCleaner, to saying Mastertech doesn't advertise enough, to saying Mastertech lies about who he is. As much as I love reading this topic and laughing, this flaming needs to stop.

 

As for discussion on the actual issue at hand, Mastertech is right in saying if the same version of the OS, IE, and CCleaner are used, every computer will have the same problem. Although if some other program interferes, things may change.

 

I did a quick test and Mastertech is right, using XP SP2, IE 6.0.2900.2180, and Firefox 1.0.6, the issue is only reproducible in Firefox. An easier way to fix it instead of closing Firefox and re-running CCleaner is to just hold down SHIFT while reloading the page. This will force Firefox to download everything from the server rather than using the cache. It would be nice to have CCleaner tell the user to close Firefox before cleaning so it won't happen.

 

And although I probably shouldn't say it, your guide Mastertech does have some things that I'd recommend changing.

Feel free to make suggestions it doesn't mean they will be done, but feel free.

You need to browse some sites or do some searches in Lycos with Firefox, then run CCleaner without closing Firefox. Now try to do the exact same searches again, things like the links will not work now.

Is this issue being addressed? A new version is released and still no resolution for this. Other "cleaning" programs will let you know your web browser is running. I see Firefox is still enabled by default and selecting it gives no warning.

I agree that this needs to be adressed but it isnt a critical problem. Give mr.g some time.

 

 

 

Addressed. ;)

 

This issue could be resolved by prompting that the browsers will be closed before cleaning, then force the closing of them if they say yes.

No but I can confirm it happens with v1.0.6.

 

 

 

1.0.6 is just a security and stability upgrade of 1.0, 1.5 (now being tested as Deerpark) is a major revision of the browser, including significant changes in how graphics are handled. I don't know if this will involve changing the caching system, though.

 

Since the release of 1.5 is scheduled to take place in a couple months, any revision to CCleaner intended to change the way it interacts with Firefox should be designed for that version.

v1.17.090

 

I'm an experienced XP user, but a novice CCleaner user. FF is my deafult browser. Is this issue resolved yet please? I'm about to run CC and would like to know of any downsides!
