ICE apps and their cookies
« on: May 24, 2020, 03:54:04 am »
Hello community! I love the idea of the native web apps, but I would like to know that since all the apps are isolated, where are the cookies and history stored?  And maybe this question will sound weird, but the cookies can't interact with eachother, right? Because I delete my history always because of the cookies, but now I can't because the apps don't leave any history in the Firefox.

as far as I know the instances are just your usual firefox profile in single-site mode.

Each instance of ICE is an isolated browser container. Each holds it's own separate set of bookmarks, cookies, history, passwords etc... etc....

read more about them here:

https://peppermintos.com/guide/ice/

Press ALT on your keyboard to make the menu bar appear, clicking on any of those will open a new window within that container.

ICE was originally intended to prevent crashing of work due to having too many tabs open in any one browser. Deploying ICE SSBs preserves workflow, so one site crashing doesn't take down your entire desktop.

 ;)

Eventually, #teampeppermint realized ICE provided a privacy bonanza. It prevents the privacy invasive websites from snooping in on your other open tabs...   8)

So in my case, my FB, GGL, MeWe & twttr ICE instances, each have their own sets of bookmarks... and their own sets of addons...

I honestly don't know why anyone who is concerned about their privacy doesn't use them?

Hi spence, my ice ssb's don't do anything when clicking alt. Could that be because I'm in P 9?  If I remember corectly, we were testing something about this for the P 10 respin.
What was I thinking?

Hi alynur,

I think you are correct. Unfortunately I do not have Peppermint 9 installed to test that.

Some devices, depending upon brand, may need ctrl+alt ... or shift+alt... lemme spin up PMIX on my desktop to see...

Pressing ALT does NOT bring up the Menu Bar in the PMVIII Respin version... I recollect the discussion about testing access to ICE menu and keyboard short cuts, but given the forum's Menu Bar changes, it might take me more than a bit to turn up Mark's musings.

That's because the default browser was Chromium at the time.

hmmm... I'll hafta reboot to see if I flipped my PMVIII ICE SSBs to firefox... later...

EDIT:  you nailed it Default Chromium. As I usually do with all PM installations I left everything just as Mark shipped it out. Aside from removing the things I'll never use, I have little patience with customizing.

That said, bookmarks, history, addons and extenstion are still available in Chromium. One just clicks on the 3 dots to the right of the profile icon in upper right corner.
