Cache isn't deleted after performing a "Restore Defaults" (Manage Options menu). This cache of the previous user or session persists.

I can delete the cache when Login session is selected, since it can only be deleted after a restart. Wouldn't consider it a critical issue since cache isn't deleted when you log out using TweetDeck directly nor when you log out of a website in any other browser, but it seems like a good idea when restoring the profile.

On second thought, I'm not sure about the point of it. Deleting login session only deletes the authentication key, same as clearing browser cookies or clicking Log out on the website.

There's still browser-wide data regarding visited links from Chromium, there's storage TweetDeck uses to save for example account IDs and search history, and various other browser caches.

The only way to properly get rid of all signs of a previous user's existence is to delete the entire storage folder. I can make that possible within the app if there's interest, but I'd like to know the specific use case, why there's a need to delete everything except for TweetDuck settings and plugin data.
