Firefox/3.5.10 to view cookies knowledge base says use tools/option: no tools/option

Posted

On freebsd7.0 or 8.2 firefox3.5.10. After upgrading the View Cookies add on no longer works.

The knowledge base says to view cookies use tools/options/Privacy. There is no Option under Tools.

How can I view a site's cookies?

Previous to View Cookies, I accessed by entering something as an URL that contain the cookie name, but I do not remember the syntax.

Can you give me the syntax.

Under *nix it's called Preferences and it's under Edit. Under Windows it's called Options and it's under Tools. It's an odd OS custom that's still used.

On the freebsd 7.0 system I have Firefox/3.0.9 and the edit preferences/privacy has the cookies menu with a show cookies button. On my freebsd 8.2 system with firefox/3.10.1 there is no cookies section anywhere on the edit/preferences dialog.

I just looked again and firefox/ 3.10.1 has a link under edit/preferences/privacy "Remove Individual Cookies" that does let you look at the cookies. It sure is not a nice as the View Cookies 1.10.1extension before it quit working

Thanks for the help
