When you open a website in your web browser, it might store some files on your computer known as cookies. Depending on how the website is designed, these cookies can store useful information to enhance your web experience such as storing your login status so that you do not have login again. But they can also be used to do some things that are normally frowned upon, for example, for tracking your use of the internet across many sites.
If you want to see all the cookies stored in your Firefox browser user profile, then you can use the Firefox CookieMan program. It is a portable tool that can be used to view and manage all the cookies stored in your Firefox browser profile by different websites. You can check cookie names, their content and the expiry date. You can even edit the content of these cookies manually.
When launched, it automatically loads the default Firefox user profile and shows you all the cookies stored in it. But you can click on the profile icon to choose another user profile or a profile from portable Firefox installations. It is not able to load the user profile of older Firefox versions.
You can select a cookie to see all the details stored inside it – name, value, host, domain, path, expiry date, access date etc. If you choose to edit a cookie, then you will be able to modify all of these values including the expiry date, secure access flag or the same site flag.
Firefox CookieMan is not dependent on Firefox or its various components. It simply accesses the “cookies.sqlite” file from the profile folder and reads the data stored inside it. But at the same time, you should close Firefox browser before editing or deleting any cookies.
