Steps to reproduce



Repro Steps:

  1. Go to Internet Options -> History -> Delete… and check all checkboxes (so that everything should be deleted on Exit).
  2. Sign in to some Website (e.g. Facebook) but make sure the Website is NOT in your Bookmarks
  3. Close IE11
  4. Reopen IE11
    => You are still signed in to the website (bug!)
  5. Close IE11
  6. Reopen IE11
    => You are finally signed out

Reproducible on Windows 8.1 64 bit with IE11.0.9600.16384

Expected Results:

Everything (Cookies and history) should be deleted instantly (not on the second time) IE11 is closed.

Actual Results:
