Deleting Cookies: Windows: Opera and Mozilla

Reminder: You should not delete cookies without understanding the possible consequences of doing so. The details are available in this post.

Opera (all versions)

To delete cookies in Opera, you need a freeware program called Opera File Explorer. There is one version for Opera 3.62 and below, and another for Opera 4 and above. You can obtain this program zipped here. To install it, simply create a new folder in your Opera directory, extract the files to that directory, and run the program file. Once the program is up and running, the procedure for cookie management is the same for both.

  • Open Opera File Explorer.
  • Click File--Open.
  • Click Cookies.
  • Select the Cookie file. This is cookies4.dat in the main Opera directory.
  • Select all cookies from site and
  • Click delete.

Mozilla 1

  • Go to Tools--Cookie Manager--Manage Stored Cookies.
  • Select all and cookies.
  • Click Remove Cookie.
  • Click OK.
