Management of individual cookies

Posted

Obviously, it's an old issue, but it even got worse. Mozilla removed the management of individual cookies, which makes it a nightmare to develop sites for me. Yet there was this "chrome://browser/content/preferences/cookies.xul" way to access all them cookies in firefox the old, good way. Well, actually this feature is also long gone from the main Firefox release, but it was still available in ESR version. Now, with the latest ESR version, it's gone too. It's impossible for me to understand why that happened, and frankly, i don't really care. There are no possible arguments which would make any sense. So, my question is whether it's coming back or not.

hi, if you're developing websites, you can use the storage inspector to delete and manipulate individual cookies: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Storage_Inspector

the old panel from the preferences will not have a comeback for the foreseeable future...

Hi, thanks for your answer, i'm well aware of Storage Inspector, and it's absolutely inconvenient for me to use. Oh well, what you're gonna do. Goodbye Firefox. :(
