Hi ! is it normal when i click "clear all data" in preferences -- privacy... -- "Site Data" "Your stored site data is currently using .... of disk space"

I had to re-login into all sites. mozillazine, hotmail, discogs, etc...

Or because i click "clear now" under "Cached Web Content".

BTW, my history is OK (all sites are there)

"Remember logins and passwords for websites" Is Selected (check mark).

:-)

edits: Forgot to precise "I had to re-login" I just needs clicking "ok" or "enter" to re-enter the page, no needs to re-enter the names and pass.

Hello,

Yes. Clicking Clear All Data shows the following warning:
Code: Select all
Clear all cookies and site data
Selecting 'Clear Now' will clear all cookies and site data stored by Firefox. This may sign you out of websites and remove offline web content.
[Clear Now]       [Cancel]

Login information is stored in cookies. You cleared cookies. Therefore you had to log in again.
