Exception Cookies are deleted/ Profile locations

Post by slimjet1000 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 8:09 am

I set my content settings under privacy to:
"Keep local data only until you quit your browser"

and added site exceptions in the "manage exceptions".

However, all cookies, including the exception ones are deleted.

Note:
I am also using the Chromium (chrome-win32) binaries for windows, and there, this does not happen.

Additional different topic:
The profiles use the same setting as are the chrome-win32, which does not allow for separate settings or profiles between the two products.

Slimjet shouldn't share the setting or profile with Chromium, unless you are using your Google account to sync data and settings.

As for the cookie deletion, did you somehow turn on the option "Clean the following items at exit" under the privacy section? If that option is turned on, the selected items are deleted without considering for the exception sites you defined in the content settings.

My mistake. I am using a --user-data-dir in the shortcut and didn't remember to change the path.

As for the cookies:
Yes, my setting is "Keep local data only until you quit your browser" and "Clean the following selected items at exit", but that, according to my understanding, should exclude the items I want to keep, i.e. "exceptions" on the cookies settings.

This understanding is based on the way Chromium works (the open source, not Google Chrome), and a Gecko-based browser (Seamonkey) which offer similar functionality, and allows me to keep only the cookies I mark, while most of the data is cleaned on exiting the browser.

I find the disappearance of "exception" cookies uncomfortable, and not intuitive, because why would these options be offered, if they are not combined, for the ease of the user?

Just a point of view, which, of course, does not mean you share.

I guess if you use the option "Keep local data only until you quit your browser" already, there is no need to use the option "Clean the following selected items at exit" to clean cookies at exit.
