Clear Cookies and Site Data Doesn't Work

I was having trouble switching and logging out of Twitter so I thought I could just clear site cookies to make it work, but I weirdly discovered "about:preferences -> Manage Data -> Remove Selected / Remove All Shown" has no effect. i.e. after clearing, when I open up manage data again, they are still there. I did not try "Clear Data" above it because I was afraid of clearing out all my logins.

I reinstalled my computer several weeks ago and current profile was directly copied from my last machine, so this might be a possible cause? Could someone be so kind to help me get remove cookies and hopefully twitter back to work? Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much for both your replies. Mozilla system was having some issues previously and I couldn't set this question as resolved.

Please forgive my dumbness I didn't click the blue "Save Changes" . Now it comes back to me I have encountered the exact same issue several years ago and I never learned.

Did you try to use "clear cookies and site data" in the padlock icon drop-down panel ?

Close/unload all Twitter tabs first then open the history sidebar (Ctrl+H), search for twitter, right-click and choose "Forget about this site".
