Viewing stored cookies, site data, and cache currently in Firefox?

Firefox say Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 327 MB of disk space.

When I click Manage Data there's no list of stored data, as I'd see in Safari.

The two Remove buttons are grayed-out so I assume I have to guess what sites are storing data in order to delete that data. WTF.

I'm apparently in Permanent Private Browsing mode, which I prefer. Firefox allows for third-party content extensions, which I also like. Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is checked.

So how can I clear, or can I clear the 327MB data, if I can't see it? Or is it super or perma-cookies that are stuck 'till the drive is nuked?





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I know this one!

Firefox > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Cookies & Site Data > Manage Data

You can sort by storage used and then delete cookies and site data as desired.

Firefox > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Cookies & Site Data > Clear Data

You can delete your cached web content. You can also nuke all cookies and site data in one click here, but I prefer being more selective.

"I'm apparently in Permanent Private Browsing mode"

"The two Remove buttons are grayed-out"


I believe if you uncheck the "always use private browsing" box in Prefs and restart Firefox you will be able to view and/or remove. You can then reselect private browsing and then restart Firefox.
