    How can I automatically clear persistent cookies

    I'm using Firefox which I've set to clear cookies when I quit. However, one or two persistent cookies still seem to remain - I guess that's why they're called persistent.

    Is there anyway to automatically clear these as well? I've done a search for a solution but not come up with anything so far.

    Hi, have you tried Ccleaner?

    No idea as to how effective it is in particular to persistent cookies, but the list should help you.

    Thanks for the reply. I do use CCleaner to get rid of them but that relies on me running it. I'm really looking for an automatic process that clears the persistent little devils when I close FF.

    Hi Sam, I can show you how to automatically clear cookies, etc, when you close Firefox. There is a program called Sandboxie. Is a sandbox program that you can use to run Firefox (or any browser, but Edge). By default, all changes, including cookies, get deleted when you close the browser.

    If you are not familiar with the program, you might like to read the article (link below) I wrote about Sandboxie last month.

    Is a fantastic program. In a nutshell, anything you do in a browsing session, gets deleted when you close the browser. I dont care what it is, if you run Firefox under Sandboxie, all changes, including persistent cookies, malware, keyloggers, etc, are deleted.

    Sandboxing the browser is just the tip of the iceberg of what can be done with Sandboxie. If you read the article, you ll get a rough idea of what SBIE is about. Also, check this threads at another forum about SBIE. One of them go back years.

    The link below is the link to the Sandboxie site. Right now the site is down and probably will be like that till Monday. So, even if you wanted, you cant test it right now. But if Sandboxie sounds interesting, read the article and the threads. The last couple of days, most posts have to do with the Sandboxie site being down. I participate in the threads. Check them out. And try Sandboxie on Monday when the site is up and running.

    Like I wrote, by default, all changes are deleted when you close Firefox. But Sandboxie is flexible, so there are settings available to save bookmarks, cookies, if that was what you wanted, etc. You can also save downloads or anything. You can tighten or relax the sandbox as much as you want. The screen below is of one section in Sandbox settings that can be used to set Firefox as you wish There are other sections or windows in Sandbox settings that are used for setting up Firefox or any program that you run in the sandbox, but in the section in the picture, you can see cookies being mentioned. And it should give you a rough idea of what SBIE can do for you.
