« on: October 15, 2013, 07:09:38 PM »
this settings (attached) works fine for the websites but when I clean up with CCleaner this settings turns default.  :-\

are you sure this isnt a problem with ccleaner. it sounds like ccleaner clears privdogs cache so all the settings get cleared.

Hi wasgij6,
thanks for your support  :)

if PrivDog Cache cleaned by ccleaner?, Why it did not happen for Chrome ?

and CCleaner has support for PrivDog ?

It certainly does reset back to defaults every time I run CCleaner, sadly I clean regularly so have to keep changing the settings, hope that the devs can investigate and fix  :)

After running some tests I have found adding the 'adtrustmedia.com' cookie to the 'Cookies to keep'  list in CCleaner stops Privdog losing its settings for me, can anyone confirm this works for them as well ?

Hi AimeeLW,
I can confirm your findings, the cookie needs to be saved for the setting 'Ads-Block All Ad Networks' to stick in Firefox based browsers (IceDragon).
It appears that the cookie does not need to be saved for the other settings to stick (Trackers, 3rd Party Widgets and Statistics).

Thank you captainsticks for confirming this, hopefully at some point they can find a different way to store this setting, a cookie doesn't seem appropriate for storing a setting since they are volatile in nature! I'm sure this is just some oversight and they will fix at some point, but at least for now we can exclude this cookie and have a temporary fix  ;D

I confirm, true
but when I add "adtrsutmedia.com" to "cookies to keep", only "Block All Ads Network" setting is not changes with this change. 3th Party cookie blocking is never change although I add "adtrsutmedia.com" to delete cookies  or adding to "Cookie to keep"  :)

whatever it must be fixed  ;D
