How to delete cookies in Firefox (Mozilla Firefox 2.0+ / 3.0+ / 4.0+/8.0+)

Before going through the steps below, make sure you are using the latest version of Firefox for your OS. Doing this ensures that you benefit from the latest security updates offered by your browser.

  3. You will see ‘Firefox will:’. Set it to ‘Use custom settings for history.’
  4. Click on the ‘Show Cookies’ button on the right side
  5. If you want to delete cookies set by individual sites, enter the complete domain or partial domain name of the site you want to manage in the search field. Your search will retrieve the list of cookies set for that site. Click ‘Remove Cookie’
  6. If you want to delete all cookies, click the top of your Firefox window and click on your Firefox button.
