    Hello,

    A quick warning for members looking to delete only some of their cookies. I wanted to clear my cookies for a couple of sites this morning and I accidentally clicked Remove All Cookies instead of Remove Cookie. There is no warning or confirmation box after clicking the remove all cookies button! To remove the cookies for a specific domain in Mozilla Firefox follow these steps:

    • Go to the Tools menu and select Options
    • Select the Privacy menu and click the Show Cookies button
    Mozilla Thunderbird Show Cookies.JPG
    • Highlight the domain you want to delete the cookies for and click Remove Cookie.
    • Warning! Be careful not to click the Remove All Cookies button!
    • When you are done click the Close button and then the OK button.
