CCleaner & FireFox

I am running FireFox 3.5.6 & the latest version of CCleaner, with Vista which I use as my default cleaner. Some time go I also bought the SBMAV Disc Cleaner. Before closing my PC for the day I ran as I always do CCleaner, I've felt for some time it cleans FF rather too quickly after a long browsing session, & tonight it took seconds.

So I ran SBMAV in full scan not the usual quick scan. This brought up around 50 meg of FF cache, some many days old.

This isn't really a problem for me & no doubt will be sorted in a later CClean build. But if you are relying on CCleaner to remove sensitive information from FF it may not be protecting you as well as you think. I have also just duplicated the problem with my old DELL Latitude running XP.

This isn't a criticism of CCleaner, & it may not be an issue with your PC, but it might be worth looking at your FF profile after running CC.

Agreed

You can set FF to clean up after itself.
