How do I change where Firefox stores Cookies?

I recently switched over to using an SSD, and I am trying to do everything I can to prevent unnecessary writing to that drive. I've already found instructions for moving the location of Firefox's Cache files to my secondary HDD, but I haven't been able to do the same for Cookies; they're still being stored on my C: drive, in the AppData folder.

Is it possible to change the path that Firefox uses to store Cookies? If it is possible, how?

Your cookies are being stored in your profile directory (AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles). You can only move the whole profile to a different drive.

I don't mind moving the whole profile to another drive, as long doing it also changes where the Cookies are stored! I'll give this a try.
