Hi, not sure if this is the right place, but I have to report a serious bug on Fennec (based on FF 64.0.2, installed via F-Droid on a LineageOS 14.1 device without Google services)
Fennec does not delete website data, even with the relevant options enabled.
More in detail: “clear data on exit” is enabled, all the relevant boxes therein are marked except “Downloads” and “Saved Logins”. In “Advanced”, “Restore tabs” is set to “Don’t restore tabs after quitting Fennec”. “Do Not Track” and “Tracking Protection” always enabled.
Problem: search engines such as Google keep the search history, even after I “quit” the Fennec app (and, no, of course I am not logged into Google, I don’t even have a Google account).
Only if I delete the local data of Fennec the search history is deleted, but of course this also removes bookmarks, saved logins, plugins etc.
Isn’t this VERY serious?
I apologize if this is not the right place to report this.
