you have posted no where enough information

What web browser ?
Firefox
iceweasel
Seamonkey
Chromium / Chrome
safari
edge
Internet explorer

or other there MANY browsers including a TEXT only one for the terminal "w3m"


then WHAT operating system ?
a bit less important but still
Linux ( one of the dozens of flavors )
BSD / FreeBSD
OSX
win10
win8.1
win7

Cookies are mainly a browser thing and you clear them in the browser
BUT

there are also flash cookies and there location IS VERY dependent on the operating system
Linux

OK, your need to go to Preferences in Firefox. As far as I know on most versions of Windows it's under Tools, or it might conceivably be under Edit as it is on most Linux distros (not sure about Macs). Select Privacy and click Remove Individual Cookies, I suspect you will be surprised how many you have if you haven't looked before. You can then decide whether you want to remove selected cookies or all of them.

It's possible that on some systems Preferences might be called Options instead.

Or choc chips.
Sure God created man before woman. But then you always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece.

I find bits of cookies in my keyboard.
A bit of an animal.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 - 11.0
Select the 'Tools->Internet Options' menu item, and then click the 'Settings' button under the 'General' tab. Click the 'View Files' button to see a list of the temporary internet files that Explorer has stored. Cookies have names that begin 'cookie:' - the Internet Address column will tell you which website created the cookie.
Note - the 'Tools' option can also be accessed by clicking the 'gear' icon in Internet Explorer's toolbar.

Firefox 7.0 and newer
Select the 'Tools->Options' menu item (may be under the Firefox button) and click on the 'Privacy' tab. Click the 'remove individual cookies' link, and you will be shown a list of all cookies stored by Firefox. You can delete selected cookies if you wish, or you can click 'Remove All Cookies' to delete them all, or simply browse through the list to see which websites have stored cookies on your computer.

Google Chrome
Choose 'Settings' on the 'parallel bars' button (or the 'Customize and control' menu), and click 'Show advanced settings' at the bottom of the screen. In the 'Privacy' section, click on the 'Content settings...' button then click the 'all cookies and site data' button. You will be shown a list of all websites which have stored cookies on your computer. Selecting a website allows you to see the cookies, and selecting a cookie shows you the data stored in it.

Not on all versions of Firefox. On Linux Privacy can be found on Edit>Preferences>Privacy. I'm not sure about Macs, does anyone know where Privacy is found in Firefox on OSX?
