Re-enable Firefox cleaning?

Recommended Posts

At one point I asked to "skip" Firefox cleaning.  Now I want to bring it back but there seems to be no way to do that.

Help!

g'day mdw and welcome,

what is you CC and FF versions?

in CC, under the Applications tab, what options are selected for FF?

so with those options ticked, is CC not clearing FF history for example?

and you aren't using any enhancements like winapp2.ini, or EXCLUDE's?

and (obviously) you aren't in FF still or have any firefox.exe processes running (check Task Manager)?

As I mentioned, it "skips" FF cleaning altogether, since at one time (a long time ago I said to skip).

How do I reverse that and have it clean FF again?  There must be a setting in CC somewhere?

You, actually, didn't tell ccleaner to skip firefox; you told it not to warn you that firefox is open.  Your firefox skips cleaning because firefox is open or has left something still running.  There is the option to return those warnings in settings (I think it's called "show warnings" but I don't have access to a pc right now).

To stop ccleaner from skipping firefox, though, you'll need to figure out why firefox is still running in background when you use ccleaner.

CC 5.36.6278 is cleaning internet history for Firefox if the browser is closed.  It's just not showing it in the list of files deleted.
