Cookie retention (bot thinks this is unclear but I don't)

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

1.Clear cookies when you close - Enabled
2.Sites that can always use cookies - enter some urls
3.Open one of those sites on line above, then close all tabs.

Expected result:
Cookies from the site previously opened (and listed under “Sites that can always use cookies”) will still be present as is the case on other Chromium browsers like ungoogled chrome, but they are cleared in Brave no matter if listed under “Sites that can always use cookies” or not.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.27.111 Chromium: 92.0.4515.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:**
So apparently setting “clear cookies when you close” is all or none in Brave and sites that can always use cookies has no effect.
Is that accurate?
Is there a way to list some sites that are protected from losing their cookies while closing cookies from all other sites not on that list?

Still not possible but it’s in the plans.


We’re still waiting for this basic Chromium feature. And the wait continues, on and on and on … Brave developers, can you hear us? Too busy fixing BAT issues? :neutral_face:

Solved. Delete User Data folder, reboot, now cookies for Sites That Can Always Use Cookies are still present after reboot. PIA to rebuild UserData but at least the cookies I want to remain survive a reboot.
