Cookies and Site Data
Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 26.0 KB of disk space.
there always some storage used it’s value change so some days around 0.5 MB other days more

by the way i do not use any plugin or extension

thanks again and have a nice day :slight_smile:

if you have time @chrisdavidmills could you check this

and anyone is welcome to explain this

cookie is visible/accessible only for its domain
you can see the particular storage you are interested in, in the storage inspector
to find it easily, open you browser in incognito mode, so that only that storage will be there

under Cookies and Site Data

type about:cache?storage=disk&context=

do not panic i am alive :joy:

thanks man for the help
it show 9 entries
i tried to open but i did not understand any thing heheh

thanks man for your time and help

the first two are related to remote settings of the browser
see here:
the others are Brotli assets
read about it here:

thanks a lot man but the question why they show up when i start firefox while i choose private mode and also clear on exit

and if they presist so why they vanish if i clicked on clear data manually

another point do you face issue when you get to about:config in firefox for android it never open and say can not complete request and the url change to resource//andoid/assests/other lengthy address

just wanted to let you know that they restrict the about:config page to only night and beta version in android :sob:

i wish they bring it back
