Can you use the search bar to select cookies & then "remove all cookies" to delete only them?

At times I want to delete cookies that accumulate from a specific website so I use the search bar. If the "remove all cookies" is clicked after using the search bar, will only those remaining from the search be deleted, or will all cookies-- even those outside the search-- be deleted? Thanks.

Using Firefox 27.0.1

I've tested it and only the cookies that show in the result window are removed if you click Remove All Cookies.
Clearing the search bar via the icon on the far right showed that the other cookies are still there.

Note that it is usually safer to select all cookies that you want to delete and press the delete key or click the Remove Cookies button to avoid removing all cookies.
