I appreciate your frustration, but we're volunteers here --
there's no need to be unpleasant. You don't pay us for this and you
don't have to use it.
In reference to your report, you probably have a leftover
setting you need to look at. Go to Preferences, then Privacy, and
look under the cookie settings on that tab. The relevant settings
are "Accept third party cookies" and "Keep until" (and possibly
Clear history when TenFourFox closes). These might have been set a
particular way from an older version of Firefox. If twiddling these
doesn't fix it, it's time for a new profile (see How to reset your
profile at the lower right).
On my test systems, cookies and login cookies persist, if those
options are set appropriately.
Sorry about that. That'll teach me to eMail when eye-bleeding angry. I hate 'moving in' to a new browser - Facebook is incrementally dropping support for Camino by making little things here and there not work anymore.
Actually found that leftover setting on my own. Again sorry.
I cant even find the settings for cookies or the cash.... & my computer is getting slow as heck again
I went into Preferences, then Privacy, but no cookies options at all.... Nothing under tools like firefox either
Running a PPC with Tiger 10.4.11. I found the cookies but not
any options/choices, nor the options described above, ie,
"Accept third party cookies" and "Keep until" (and possibly
Clear history when TenFourFox closes)..."
I will try to attach 2 screenshots.
You are right that they are definitely NOT easy to find &
delete. Since I constantly delete cookies, in other browsers I have
it set to "NEVER STORE COOKIES" but 10/4-Fox offers no such
options, nor an easy way to simply delete them all the time while
Also can't delete Cache easily either (why not add those
2-quick-options separately, delete cache + delete cookies, in the
menu under the 10/4-Fox icon, w/o having to open preferences &
hunt them down each time? Definitely a hassle. Sorry, but
Just trying out your browser tonight for the first time. The
fact it won't show my Safari bookmarks either, even though it said
it had them in the initial set up, is a No-Go, though. Thanks
You need to choose "Use custom settings for history" from the
"TenFourFox will" drop down box to enable those options.
You can clear most settings manually, including cache, from
History > Clear Recent History.
Please note that we mirror Firefox's UI in almost all cases --
because of maintenance burden, only in exceptional circumstances
does the TenFourFox user interface differ. The current version of
Firefox works the same way in both these cases.
Ah ha! Thanks for the speedy reply. Found what you are
describing re cookie options inside the HISTORY settings (doesn't
seem to make sense putting them there, but oh well, glad to find
And re #2 tip, thanks, but you still have to OPEN the
preferences to do it, rather than a quick "DELETE HISTORY" &
"DELETE COOKIES" in the drop-down-menu of the TFF icon.
As for UI, I never used FF in the past because it was always
such a ram hog & seemed to be so weighed-down/burdened/slow,
etc., so never really got familiar with its UI.
At least TFF is Newer than my old Shiira browser which still
works great, but they don't update it ever since it's inception.
And Tiger's 4.1.3 Safari makes crunching noises of late whenever it
is opened so I quit using it for now.
Thanks again for the quick assistance! (Any hope for a Safari
bookmarks fix? :)

Er, actually, people do have to use it--or else toss their otherwise perfectly good G4 or G5 into the trash. There are just too many things these days that require you to go online, and Safari doesn't work anymore with a lot of websites.
