As I am not quite sure what you mean, I will first ask you to take a look at this :

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Storage_Inspector

Then :

Please go to the 3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Options => Privacy & Security Under 'Cookies and Site Data' => 'Manage Data'

'Hope this is what you were looking for .....

Why?

I don't know - just like the other contributors, I'm not a Mozilla employee, but a volunteer, a user just like you, trying to help other users in my spare time. Maybe somebody else (who does know why) will see this and be able to give you the answer ...... (sorry),

I'm sorry, but I can't give you anymore than what I posted before, and this :

https://www.ghacks.net/2018/02/26/mozilla-removes-individual-cookie-management-in-firefox-60/

Maybe somebody else, with better working braincells, will be able to give you a proper answer.

So why did you give an authorative answer?

It would help if only people that knew the right answer gave a response on these forums.

I started my first post with this sentence :

" As I am not quite sure what you mean, "

I'm not here to argue, but to help - at least give it my best shot.

I thought that the answer that I gave you, might be at least helpful, if not right.

I noticed that you marked one of my posts as 'Chosen Solution' - as you are obviously not happy with my posts, this must be a mistake. You can rectify that by clicking on the 'Undo' button to the right of that post.

It may have been a good answer, but not to the question I asked.

Call me stubborn, but the link I gave you in my first post is (in my humble opinion) the correct answer to the question : "How do I inspect individual cookies"

It says in the first part of that article :

The Storage Inspector is disabled by default. Enable it in the Developer Tools Settings.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Storage_Inspector

When you scroll down to 'Cookies', you will see :

With the Cookies, Local Storage, and Session Storage types, there's only one level in the hierarchy, so stored items are listed directly under each origin:

You can click on each item in the tree to expand or collapse its children. The tree is live, so if a new origin gets added (by adding an iframe, for example), it will be added to each storage type automatically.

Clicking on a tree item will display detailed information about that item in the Table Widget on the right. For example, clicking on an origin which is a child of the Cookies storage type will show all the cookies belonging to that domain.
