There is usually no need to worry about cookies as those can only contain text.

In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the Site Preferences

Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, passwords, and other website specific data.

Clearing cookies will remove all specified (selected) cookies including cookies with an allow exception that you would like to keep.

Do you know what sites the cookies are for? When a browser goes to a web site, the site stores cookies containing things like your logon and settings for that site.
