It shouldn't, if you want to empty it - clear cookies, offline data and passwords

on OSX even if you clear everything the website preferences don't get cleared in the data manager.
seamonkey version 2.22

It doesn't matter which OS you are using, if history is not cleared -> you have misbehaving add-on, check Safe Mode (Help - Restart with Add-ons Disabled)

history is cleared, websites preferences in the data manager are not.
I don't have any add-on.

I am not the only one noticing the problem, search google with:
"SeaMonkey Site preferences are not cleared"

So, did you check Safe Mode?

I did try the safe mode but the websites preferences are still not cleared (and I erase every private data).

Confirming problem on trunk, sites Permissions and Preferences are not cleared.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Visit a couple of sites which set preferences (I observe google, github, cnet and even in data list)
2) Go to Tools - Clear Private Data, check everything, press Clear Private Data Now
Expected result:
Everything in Data Manager must be deleted
Actual result:
All sites Permissions and Preferences are still present

Hardware: x86_64 → All

In Seamonkey 2.33 still some website data remains after the Clear Private Data command. 

At least this is:
Permissions - TLS False Start using RSA
Preferences - browser.content-full-zoom

Passwords and Cookies seem to be cleared now.
Summary: website preferences in data manager are not clearable → Website data remains in Data Manager after Clear Private Data command
I fixed some preferences problems in Bug 1269195. There was at least one index which was wrong / undefined. Could you recheck if this problem still is valid when 2.45 becomes available. The latest linux nightlys would also work.

No response. I assume its fixed in 2.45+ for now. Please reopen if this is not the case.
