I recently switched over to using an SSD, and I am trying to do everything I can to prevent unnecessary writing to that drive. I've already found instructions for moving the location of Firefox's Cache files to my secondary HDD, but I haven't been able to do the same for Cookies; they're still being stored on my C: drive, in the AppData folder.

Is it possible to change the path that Firefox uses to store Cookies? If it is possible, how?

I don't mind moving the whole profile to another drive, as long doing it also changes where the Cookies are stored! I'll give this a try.
