    Anyone else have this issue whereby Fiddler repeatedly invokes the Delete Browsing History function, at every capture start or change of filters, or,......, to the tune of 70 or 80 times every time?

    This obviously slows things down quite a bit, so I'd like to work out why this is happening and get it turned off,

    Hi, KW--

    Fiddler doesn't have any functionality that does that, so my guess is that at some point your Fiddler rules file was updated to call actClearWinINETCache or actClearWinINETCookies upon attach or detach or something of that nature.

    Click Rules > Customize Rules to see your FiddlerScript. If all else fails and if you don't have anything in your rules script you care about, simply delete CustomRules.js and the default file (which doesn't contain any such behavior) will be recreated.

    Don't mean to necropost here, but I was having the same issue as KW, and I couldn't find anything in my CustomRules to indicate a problem. I traced it back to the Tealeaf CSC add-on for Fiddler 4. It has an "Auto Clear IE Cache" option that, I suppose, was checked by default. I turned it off and everything worked fine afterwards. So... it might go without saying, but check your add-ons, too!
