    Does IE InPrivate Browsing erase Flash cookies after a session is closed?

    Thanks

    Searching on Google for

    flash cookies inprivate

    I found this as the second result:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2010/02/11/adobe-flash-now-supports-inprivate-browsing.aspx

    it would have been the first result if you hadn't posted this topic on the
    newsgroup (which is showing as the first result via technologyquestions.com
    which replicates the newsgroup to a web front end).

    The simple answer is "yes".

    Oops, forgot a caveat in my other reply. It's "yes" if you're using Flash
    10.1 or higher, "no" if a lower version is used.

    Nearly 100% of ALL usenet posts are permanently stored at
    Google and many other sites. They're there so anyone can
    search for them and find answers to their questions.

    HTH,

    And? My point was that a search would have yielded up a very useful post as
    the #1 result. Now it's no longer #1, it's #2, with #1 being a post asking
    about the problem that #2 covers ...

    Surely it's better to search and find a useful article, than it is to search
    and find newsgroup posts that you have to trawl through to find the links to
    the useful articles.

    Hi,

    I'd thought I would submit a wrap up post to summarize the answer and side
    issues.

    IE cannot erase the Flash player cookies, or presumbly, of any other plugin.
    Adobe has, with v10.1, added a feature to the Flash player that will
    recognize the private browsing mode (of IE and other browsers) and erase
    anything stored during the private session.

    The best Google search terms are "flash player cookies inprivate". When I
    submitted this search, the second link was the Adobe post explaining all of
    this.

    There are many websites that copy these user groups posts with the sole
    purpose of selling advertising. This greatly pollutes the search results and
    is the reason I came to this user group in the first place.

    I am also surprised that Google profiles me and other posters. In the Google
    profile for Scott@nospam.com it lists 2300+ posts made by that email
    address. I don't see any positive value to me or society in Google
    storing/listing my posts in one page (of course those are not all my posts).

    Google results can be deceptive as well as wrong. I happen to planning a
    trip to Las Vegas and searched Google for "salt lick bbq las vegas". It
    returned a result that this restaurant is in the Red Rock Casino. But that
    placed closed a year and half ago. The link displayed a cached page of the
    casino site and I did not see any notice that it was a cached page and
    therefore wrong. I did not see a link reporting that this chain had left the
    Las Vegas market.

    Thanks
    Scott
    Los Angeles
