Apart from HTTP cookies, plug-ins might have their own cookie-like mechanism, like the cross-browser "Flash-cookies" -- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Shared_Object#File_locations – Arjan Mar 19 '10 at 12:22

They are in an SQLite database in the "Application Data" folder. On my Windows 7 system:

C:\Users\Thomas\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\g47mlt1n.default\cookies.sqlite

In Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\[user_name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profile_name].default\cookies.sqlite

Cookies are saved SQLite DB format

There is a place to look at the cookies Firefox has in the options window. In Firefox 3.6, under "Tools", "Options..." and in the "Privacy" tab, there is a section about cookies with a button labeled "Show Cookies". You can see the cookies organized by site, search them, and see details about them.

If you have firefox webdeveloper toolbar, I highly recommend it in case you don't.

Simply go to the bar,click cookies, and view cookie information. It's much better than going through the actual files

Is that any different from the standard Firefox Cookie window? – OregonGhost Mar 19 '10 at 11:09
