My question is similar to
but, I am using Iceweasel (on Linux) which, supposedly, is almost the same as Firefox. Where are the cookies stored, how can they be read, etc? To find answers to such questions,
I looked for files that have the string "cookie" in their name. There are two such files in an inner subdirectory of my home directory, namely, cookies.sqlite and cookies.sqlite-journal. But the files can't be opened. Besides, I am not sure if these are really the files that uphold the cookies. Mind you, I also checked Edit > Preferences > Privacy. Still did not get what I am looking for.
I am hoping to get the location of the cookies, open them, possibly tamper with them, etc. Put simply, I am looking for any information that adds to my insight about cookies.
Anyone has any idea?
