How to delete your cookies in Firefox

If you don’t know what a cookie is then read our post on ‘what is a cookie‘.

The easiest way to delete your cookies is to use the browser called ‘Firefox’ from Mozilla. If you’re still using Internet Explorer then we’d strongly recommend switching over. If you prefer to continue using Internet Explorer then read our post on how to delete your cookies in Internet Exlorer.

In the case of Firefox, go to ‘Tools’, and then ‘Options’, and then choose ‘Privacy’.

This is what the dialogue box looks like:

Half way down the dialogue box choose ’show cookies’.

You then get a box that looks like this:

You can see you will have 100s of cookies attached to your browser, mostly from websites you have visited in the last 30 days.

In the search box type a word that exists inside the domain of the website whose cookies you want to delete. In the case of Alison’s website, I searched for ‘pagan’, since her domain name is paganmoontarot.com.

This will select all those cookies that start with the word ‘pagan’. Choose those ones for paganmoontarot.com, highlight them and then press ‘remove cookies’.

Then press ‘close’.

You then need to clear your cached version of the page, so press F5.

That process will have cleared the cookies attached by the website ‘paganmoontarot.com’. You can of course repeat the process for any website whose cookies you want to delete.

Good luck, and let me know how you get on.

Thanks to Alison for recommending this post.
