Why you should ALWAYS delete your web cookies (and how to do it)

Click on the little orange exclamation point on the upper-right side of your screen. Click Settings, then scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on the blue link that says Show Advanced Settings.

Scroll down to Privacy >> Content Settings. To delete all cookies, click on All Cookies and Site Data >> Remove All. To delete only some cookies, scroll down to specific sites and hover your cursor over it. Click the X on the right-hand side.

Firefox

It's easy to clear out all your cookies on Firefox. Click on the menu. That's the three horizontal lines on the upper-right side of your screen. Click on History >> Clear Recent History >> make sure only Cookies has a check mark next to it >> Clear Now.

To handpick which sites you want to mange, click on Menu >> Options >> on the left-hand menu, Privacy >> under History, choose Firefox Will: >> click on the down arrow and select Use Custom Settings for History >> on the right side, click on Show Cookies. Type in the website address you want to manage in Search or scroll down to find it >> highlight that site >> Remove Selected.
