Steps to reproduce

I have Edge configured to clear all data except passwords and form data on exit. Sometimes it does but often it does not. When it does there is often a delay of up to a minute before storage is cleared.

Not clearing the cache is undesirable. My concern is with the privacy issue associated with violating the expectation that closing and reopening Edge will clear all cookies and local storage.

  • I’ve added a screenshot of the cookies and local storage files that remain minutes after Edge was closed. You can see from the taskbar that Edge is not open.
