<p>Welcome to the <strong style="font-style: italic;">Add &amp; Edit

<p><span style="font-weight: bold;">The FAQ</span><br>
</p>
<p>Q: Why would I need this?<br>
A: If you are a web developer and work with cookies a lot.</p>
<p>Q: What's difference from native Cookie Manage?<br>
A: The main diffirence is that this extension edits and adds cookies not just displays them.
it also has a handy filter feature, you can filter for a specific host in the cookies list 
and the search result will be saved even if you close the browser. 
See <a href="screenshots.html">Screenshots</a>.</p>
<p>Q. How can I add a cookie.<br>
A. Select a cookie and click <i>Add</i> Button. Fill out all the fields. remember that characters ';' and '=' are used 
as separators in storing cookies, so do not use them for cookie names or values.
</p>
<p>
Q. How do I edit cookies.<br>
A. Select a cookie and click <i>Edit</i> button. You can edit the cookie value and expiration date.<br>
</p>

<hr style="width: 80%; height: 7px;" noshade="noshade">

function show_story()
{
	
	var ls = document.getElementById('long_story');
	var shl = document.getElementById('show_hide_link')

	if ( (ls.style.visibility) == "collapse")
	{
		ls.style.visibility="visible";
		shl.innerHTML = "Hide the Story "
	}
	else
	{
		ls.style.visibility="collapse";
		shl.innerHTML = "Show the Story"
	}

}

</script>

<p><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Long Story</span><br>
<p>Q: Why do this?<br>
A: <a href="javascript:show_story();"><i><span id="show_hide_link">Show the Story</span></i></a>
<div id="long_story" style="visibility: collapse; padding-left: 15px;">
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 of or found on the web. So I decided 
to create my own cookie editor.</p>

This is the first <small>*to my knowledge*</small> realtime Cookie
Editor capable of editing session as well as, file stored cookies
natively in Mozilla.<br>
The need for this appeared at one point when I need to edit cookies on
the browser end to test image verification system.<br>
I looked all over the web but there was not any editor that would allow me to 
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 ofm allowed you to edit cookie data, not even
Konqueror :-D.<br>
So I turned to <span style="font-style: italic;">MozDev</span> 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 digging into the mozilla source code, <span
 style="font-style: italic;">Add &amp; Edit Cookies</span> 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.<br>
