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
