  • @blackbird71 Eh? Looking at the cookies, local cookies are the only ones that remain after clearing data. They tell you the site visited and time visited. All other cookies are deleted. After browsing, simply pressing ctrl+shift+del (and deleting data) followed by ctrl+shift+x to close will get rid of all browsing data (and remember to sign out if on a shared PC). Whether it's a bug or not, it's still that simple to do and easy to remember. If cookies remained even after closing the browser, which they don't, then we'd have a major security flaw.

  • @Cozza
    Yes, I sent the bug to the Dev-Team.

    @leocg / @Cozza
    There are many situations in which you need to share a PC for Internet access, for example, if the network administrator does not allow freelancers to access the corporate network, or in a large family, or in a shared flat with only one PC. So there are so many such situations ... We can discuss that for an infinite amount of time, but that will not fix the bug.

    Why do the cookies and offline entries remain visible after deletion? I am not sure if this is just an error of the GUI, or if the data can still be found in a cache or a database, which can be read by a website !?

    A good browser also has to be fault-tolerant ...

    Thanks for your contributions.

    Thanks blackbird71 and burnout426, we are on the same track.
    Let's see what the Opera Dev-Team does.

  • Thought you all might like to know, I've recently been testing Opera Developer v50 and as far as I can see, ALL cookies are being deleted when either using 'Clear browsing data' or manually deleting them without needing to close the browser. Please run your own tests to confirm. Perhaps Opera took notice of the bug report (I sent one too).

  • Bugs DNAWIZ-22081 and DNAWIZ-21841 have been filed about this issue. They have not been resolved. However, I also tested in the latest Opera Developer (Opera 50) and I couldn't reproduce the problem. Can anyone else confirm that it doesn't have in Opera 50?

  • @cozza

    I have just installed the latest beta version.
    In Opera DEV-BETA 50.0.2762.4 64-Bit the Bug is fixed.
    Let's hope that it stays that way in the stable version.

    Special thanks to the Opera DEV-TEAM,
    and thanks to all interested in the forum.
