Steps to reproduce

URL:
N/A

REPRO STEPS:

  • Use IE9/IE10 for some time with multiple tabs.

  • Save passwords for various sites and set preferences n sites such as Bing, Google (language preferences etc.)

  • Exit browser and restart. On next reboot you will find your preferences, saved password and last session intact as expected.

  • Now, open several tabs again and pull out power plug or battery in order to make system shutdown unexpectedly.

  • Start your system again. Unfortunately, IE SHALL undergo amnesia and forget all the user preferences and saved password, auto-complete values and last browsing session etc.

EXPECTED RESULTS:
IE should store the user preferences as they change on permanent storage rather waiting for proper system shutdown. It looks like user preference storage is very fragile and semi-volatile. Firefox remembers everything in such situations.

ACTUAL RESULTS:
IE forgets everything if the system encounters unexpected shutdown, as if we have opened IE for the first time after the fresh install.
