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

  • 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.
