On my computer I have WinPatrol installed and at the close of every browsing session I used to make use of it's "view cookies" function to delete them. Recently I had reason to refresh FireFox and since then the view cookies function in WinPatrol no longer works. According to WinPatrol this is because the "filepath" to where cookies are stored has been deleted. Unfortunately I have no idea what the filepath is or how to restore it. If anybody out there could tell me what it is and how to restore it I should be eternally grateful. And yes, I do know that I am an idiot and should not be allowed near a computer that's why I'm asking for help. Thanks.

Using Firefox 16.0.1 under Windows 7

I want to use wget to script fetching some files, but I need the cookies from my login. wget lets you load from a cookies.txt file, but all I can find is cookies.sqlite, and that does not seem to work.

I am assuming that cookies.sqlite is an "improvement" over the older "cookies.txt" format ... but is there any way to export cookies to the old format (or just tell Firefox to use the old format)?

I thought that all expired cookies should be deleted automatically by the browser. but that is not the way it happens in my Firefox (same behaviour for different web-sites).

closing Firefox and even reboot of the computer don't help. the only way to remove expired cookies from Firefox is: by hand (which means I have to choose cookie in Privacy Tab of Firefox Options and press button 'Delete cookie').

well, the good news: expired cookies are ignored by the servers (tested with user script through my virtual server) but for unknown reason still continue to be stored idle in Firefox.

Is that the way it should work?

I would like to clear cache, delete cookies and also enable/disable storage of cookies on will and by website as I am doing it in other browsers. How can I do that? I seem to remember doing this with older versions.

I looked at all help instructions but what's provided doesn't work as described. Under the pointed to icon (3 short horizontal lines), I see Cut, Copy, Paste, New Window, New Private Window, Save Page, History, Full Screen, Find, Add-Ons, Develpper, Synced Tabs and and entry for Sign in to Sync and for Customize.

There is no place in any menu where I can clear Cache, delete cookies. One can clear history under History, but the other functions disappeared. I am using ver 53.0.2 (32 bit) w. Windows 10. How can I accomplish what I need to do?

Thanks.

I have no problems with most cookies, but periodically I need to clear the cookies for a particular website. I don't want to delete them all, as that would eliminate a bunch of username/password combos that I don't want to replicate. There used to be a way to bring up the cookies, and I could sort them so that I could delete all the ones for xyz (example: all the ones for familysearch.org). However, I can't find the place in Quantum to delete SELECTED cookies. Where is it?

gmail wont let me log in. Says my cookies function is turned off. I have reset cache and cookies, i have adjusted privacy settings for history to custom and set third party cookies to always and to keep until expire. I have followed some forum help and opened history to show all and right clicked forget webpage. I have shown all cookies and removed and even reset Firefox. Yet nothing seems to work. some other websites that require log in work fine, and others don't ie the webpage i use for school at local university doesn't work. its an .edu page and never loads. ctrl+shift+k seems like the cookies are blocked one way or the other maybe on the receiving side. please advice!
