extensions can't preserve their settings after restart

Postby nObRaIn » Wed Dec 30, 2009 10:55 am

hi all,

i've been messing around with some extensions with the latest beta of iron but it seems none of the extension settings are permanent for some reason. i'm in win 7 x64 and i am using a normal user account but i have full access to the extension folder. am i missing something or is it a known problem?

My guess is you are clearing your private browsing data. Would that be correct? If so, the reason for this problem is detailed in http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue ... l?id=28788 :

"There needs to be some way to clear local storage from within Chromium's UI. This needs to happen for mstone 4 per Darin. Let's use the clear browser data box and overload the cookie check box to also clear out local storage. For mstone 5, we'll make things cleaner."

One workaround is to clear cookies using Wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood > Show cookies and website permissions, which will leave your extensions settings intact.

This will be fixed in Chromium 5.x series in http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue ... l?id=26713
