Cannot see Cookies with new update of firefox.
I recently updated firefox, but when I look on the PRIVACY window, where
websites store cookies, I am no longer able to see any cookies that
are being stored, and I am not able to delete the cookies as soon as I leave
their site, as I had been doing for a long time prior to updating.
So I am wondering where the heck are the cookies being stored now, with the
new update? I like to be able to delete their cookies immediately, and
I also wonder why firefox does not make it much easier for us to see
all the cookies and delete them with one click, instead of having to
use the <<TOOLS<<OPTIONS<<PRIVACY way of looking at and deleting cookies.
The option to delete the cookies when firefox closes is not as efficient
and I will get tracked until I close firefox, and I prefer to not be tracked
so I like to just delete their cookies as soon as I am no longer using their
site anymore.

way of looking at and deleting cookies. The option to delete the cookies when firefox closes is not as efficient and I will get tracked until I close firefox, and I prefer to not be tracked so I like to just delete their cookies as soon as I am no longer using their site anymore. So I need to know how to make the cookies visible again, so I can immediately delete them. thank you

There are extension to manage cookies more easily.

If you let all the cookies expire when you close Firefox (i.e. make them session cookies) then there is usually no need to remove cookies manually.

Note that you can also click the Site Identity Button (globe/padlock) on the location bar and click More Information the get a View Cookies button.
