How do I delete "selected cookies" in Quantum

Posted

I have no problems with most cookies, but periodically I need to clear the cookies for a particular website. I don't want to delete them all, as that would eliminate a bunch of username/password combos that I don't want to replicate. There used to be a way to bring up the cookies, and I could sort them so that I could delete all the ones for xyz (example: all the ones for familysearch.org). However, I can't find the place in Quantum to delete SELECTED cookies. Where is it?

Hi,

I believe you can delete cookies for a particular site by doing the following:

  1. Open the Firefox preferences.
  2. Click on "Privacy and security"
  3. Under the "history" section, you'll see a blue link that says "remove individual cookies". Click on that.
  4. Click on the name of the site whose cookies you want to remove, so that it is highlighted in blue.
  5. Choose "Remove selected".

Hope that helps!

Thank you! I was searching for "selected" not "individual" and totally overlooked the part in the history section. I was looking for something in the cached section.

Hi iamlightnow

You need to use the Storage Inspector (Shift+F9) to remove individual cookies.

In Firefox 60 you still have the old Cookie Manager that allows to delete individual cookies when you use "View Cookies" in "Tools -> Page Info -> Security". This will no longer be possible in Firefox 61+.

Thank u for the reply. This storage inspector stuff is a bit too much for us plain old simple computer users, but your telling me how to access cookies, at least for now, thru Tools, is very helpful. It is a change in FF I am not happy with.....
