Welcome to the Add & Edit +Cookies project.

The Short Story/FAQ
+

+

Q: Why is this?
+A: Once I was working with an image verification system and needed to +edit cookie values for a session cookie. The Mozilla/Firefox cookie +manager is not something that +could help in this case. Nor did any other browser or tool I knew off +or found on the web. So I decided to create my own cookie editor.

+

Q: Why do I need it?
+A: Only if you work with cookies very much.

+

Q: What's the difference?
+A: There are few differences from the original Mozilla/Firefox Cookie +Manger now: you can load +cookie manager as the modeless window (i.e. separate window or even +sidebar *future release*) from Tools menu or bookmarks +toolbar. Also, you can search for +a specific host in the cookies list and the search result will be +persistent. And most important you can add new cookies and edit cookie +values for any cookie you wish. See Screenshots.

+

Q. How can I add a cookie.
+A. In version 0.1 you can only edit the value of the current cookie. +Following version will include adding new +cookies, and editing nearly all information of existing cookies.
+
+Q. I want to edit more the just cookie value.
+A. See answer above.

The Long Story
+This is the first *to my knowledge* realtime Cookie +Editor capable of editing session as well as file stored cookies +natively in Mozilla.
+The need for this appeared at one point when I need to edit cookies on +the browser end to test image verification system.
+I looked all over the web but there was not any editor that would edit +session cookies, which was understandable since session cookies are +stored in the browser memory and removed upon terminating the browser. +And no browser, I knew of allowed you to edit cookie data, not even +Konqueror :-D.
+So I turned to MozDev to see +if anyone has made such extension. But alas even there solution was not +found. One project (cookiemanager) started to develop such extentsion +but it did not take off. So after 3 days of research at XulPlanet, +perusing Mozilla Docs, and after digging into the mozilla source code, Add & Edit Cookies Editor was +born. I would like to thank the owner, Ruslan Bondarev, of the above +mentioned project for generously offering his work to build upon
