- by Firefox user 13480693, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great supplement to "Cookie AutoDelete": Found out that local storage clearing does not work reliable in "Cookie AutoDelete". This plugin allows me to clear all other stored data on startup.
Must-have for privacy-concerned users.
- by Evrybase.com, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Perfect Add-On - should be included in Firefox, just as it is for normal Cookies.
One thing: the author could make it more clear in description that this add-on will not touch a user's history or bookmarks. That would be helpful as Firefox will prompt, upon installation, that the add-on requires permission to alter the user's history. But that's only because the APIs to delete local storage reside on the same branch as the endpoints for history removal...

The add-on description says "The addon does not touch the IndexedDB databases created by other addons, only those which were created by websites", but it actually wipes out all ScriptSafe settings :/
Edit: I don't know how ScriptSafe save their settings, but I know that whenever I have both ScriptSafe and StorageErazor enabled, my ScriptSafe settings get nuked every time I restart Firefox. Turning off StorageErazor solves the issue. None of my other extensions seem affected by StorageErazor.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoAre you sure that ScriptSafe creates a IndexedDB database?
I don't see any folder created after installing ScriptSafe and changing its options. The IndexedDB folders are created in c:\users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\profiles\***\storage\default
If an addon stores data there, the folder name starts with moz-extension+++
These folders do not get touched by StoragErazor
- by T.Y.T, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Would be even better if the stored data could be deleted once all pages related to a website are closed - actually what you did for your cookie cleaner addon.
I seldom restart my browser and so, as such, StoragErazor is not so useful..... yet ? ;)
Thanks for your idea and time!
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThe addon does not do anything to single websites, it removes all IndexedDB data at once. The addon is not aware how many websites stored their data there. The method it uses to delete the data did not take single websites as an option when it was created. Though maybe that changed or changes in the future. Then the addon may get updated.
Or perhaps I will add an option to periodically clear the data. Like you I also rarely restart the browser.
