iOS clear private data


Description of the issue:
I want to block everything by default and allow scripts or others on a per site basis. I assume that cookies are used to keep up with that.

Also, periodically I want to clear history and cache, but not cookies or saved logins when I “clear private data.”

Sometimes this works, sometimes EVERYTHING gets cleared despite my looking right at the cookies and login options turned off.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Everything blocked by default
  2. Visit a site and change the shields for that page to allow scripts.
  3. Repeat step 2 as needed for multiple pages.
  4. Close browser, reopen, everything works as desired.
  5. Go to settings, Clear private data, make sure cookies and logins are off, click to clear.
  6. Close browser and reopen. Results unpredictable.
    (This might work a couple of times, but eventually when I clear, ALL cookies will also be cleared despite the setting being off. Logins seem to be retained.)

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:
Randomly as far as i can tell.

Brave Version(about:brave):

Device Model

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional Information:
Also, sometimes when I change the clear private data settings (without using the clear data button), my changes are not retained.
