Iron bringing over information after a windows reinstall

Postby Wonderinguser » Thu Sep 13, 2012 2:46 am

So I've been using Iron for a while now, and have recently reinstalled windows on my computer. When i redownloaded iron, I searched a term into what I thought was google. It turns out that Iron remember the default search engine I had used before the reinstall.

How does it know this? The search engine is fairly obscure, and the default one on Iron is Google, so why did it continue to use my older search engine?

Iron does not remove the profile info on deinstallation.

He said windows install, not iron re-install, i think you may have misunderstood, no insult to you just making it clear. I wonder if when you sign-in to Iron as a profile is created if that is a cloud based storage that pulls back your settings when signed into again after a new install of the browser.
