Clear on exit (cookies)

Valued Contributor



What is this option for ?




If I add a site, for example or [*.]
If I close Edge and reopen it, the list is empty and cookies are not deleted

Its job is to remembers the URL of the website where the cookies originate from, then whenever you close your browser, any cookies saved on your device from that specific URL gets deleted.

trying on Version 81.0.396.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
after browser closing/reopening, the "clear on exit" list is kept intact and the cookies originated from that URL are deleted when i search for it in edge://settings/siteData

so which channel and website you are having problem with?





That's what I thought, but it doesn't work for me
Maybe the "format" of the url that I indicate is not good


I tested with, and cookies are not deleted and the list is emptied after I close and reopen Edge



Which Version/channel?



Version 81.0.396.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit) ;)

It does not work

Version 81.0.400.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
Well keep trying every new version until it works, send browser feedback on each new version that still has this cookies problem
It still does not work
And the new option to add cookies that won't be deleted when closed, doesn't work either
