Qupzilla-flash cookies-delete on exit


I've recently added Qupzilla on my Linux Mint 13 (the one that was based on Ubuntu 12.04) setup with a Mate desktop (and XFCE added as a second desktop environment.)

I've missed whatever description there is of the handling of flash cookies in Qupzilla. I'm wondering if they're handled like other cookies generally and whether a preference can be set to delete them automatically on exit, as my preferences are set for cookies generally.

If such a preference can be easily set I'd plan on using click2flash, not enabling flash generally. Presently flash content is diabled in Qupzilla and only opened using Firefox.

I'm aware of the macromedia.com website and am not looking for suggestions to go there for settings.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

i doubt qupzilla has such a feature, being lightweight as it is.
if you can find out where the cookies are stored, you can try some tricks - make the file read-only, or maybe the whole directory, or write a simple shell script daemon that looks for flash cookies and deletes them.

yesterday i tried qupzilla again, and i must say it seems to be an (almost) full-grown web browser.
however deleting flash cookies isn't standard even for the "giants" firefox and chrome.
maybe there's a possibility for addons or plugins for qupzilla?
