Torbutton holds on to cookies that Firefox would otherwise delete
Over in Mozilla bug tracker, someone opened a bug about Firefox not deleting his cookies, even when he had it set to clear his data at the end of every session.
He later commented:
It seems that the latest update to Torbutton (1.2.0) is managing cookies outside of the Firefox cookie system in a file called "cookies-nontor.xml" in the users profile folder, and that although it is possible to manually clear all cookies for a session Torbutton does not forget them and in fact re-instates them next time Firefox is loaded.
Therefor, not a bug in Firefox and definitely some kind of problem in Torbutton add-on.
If true, this is almost certainly unexpected behaviour for most TorButton users, and likely undesirable as well?
