Almost all of the websites today make use of the cookies. These websites store cookies in your browser to give to offer you some features and a better user experience. For example, these cookies can be used to store your login information so that you do not have to login over and over again, store your preferences so that a website always shows up just like you want it and more. But some of these cookies are also used for tracking your internet browsing behavior – these cookies are called tracking cookies. Fortunately you can remove these cookies from Firefox web browser easily.
And in the newest version of the Firefox web browser, you can also remove the cookies from just one website while keeping the cookies for all the other websites completely untouched. Here is how:
- In the address bar of the Firefox web browser, type about:preferences#privacy and press Enter.
- Under the Cookies and Site Data category, click on the button labeled Manage Data.
- In the window that opens up, search for the domain name of the website for which you want to clear the cookies. For example, if you want to emove the cookies set by DuckDuckGo.com then search for DuckDuckGo.
- When it displays the cookies belonging to the website that you searched for, you can click on the button labeled Remove all Shown.
This is a not very convenient way of removing the cookies belonging to a website or domain, but it works perfectly well. It would have much better if the this feature was available as an item in the right-click context-menu for the various tabs. The same method can be used to remove specific cookies from a particular domain name. These ways can save all of your other private cookies and data without having to clean the entire history.
