Description of the issue:
Cookies are cleared on sites, despite there being no setting configured to enable this behaviour. Cookies persist when site is exited, but are deleted when browser is closed.
Steps to Reproduce
- with the two settings in Brave keeps deleting cookies when closing browser - #2 by Rethanis set to not clear site data
- visit https://steveballantine.github.io/spirit-island-randomiser/ and create a pre-set. (Click “add new pre-set”, give it a name, then to save time check the “populate from current” box and then hit save)
- close browser
- return to https://steveballantine.github.io/spirit-island-randomiser/ and notice that there is no saved preset
despite there being no setting that forces the clearing of the site data, the site data is cleared
site data is not cleared unless a configuration requires it
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version:
|Windows 10 Home
|Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.19052.1000.0
Version 1.59.120 Chromium: 118.0.5993.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)
These two settings
Clear cookies and site data when you close all windows.
Cookies and other site data
are not set to clear site data
I can get this to work in Edge, so it’s not a problem with the site. The difference is that in Edge I can configure edge://settings/clearBrowsingDataOnClose with an exclusion for the site that I want to preserve. I believe that all settings in Edge that have exact equivalents in Brave have been set the same.
