Your Input Matters
The "Cookie Editor" extension offers a toolbar popup for accessing and adjusting all cookies associated with the current webpage. The extension collects hostnames from the top frame and subframes, retrieving the corresponding cookies. These cookies are displayed in distinct groups, allowing users to view their values, and edit, or delete them as desired. For a comprehensive overview of cookie properties, select the desired cookie and inspect the editor section.



  1. What is the "Cookie Editor" extension and how does it work?

    This extension operates without a persistent background script, ensuring minimal impact on browser performance when not in use. Upon clicking the toolbar button (action button), the extension injects a single-line script into each page and its subframes to collect all present origins. Subsequently, it requests your browser to retrieve all related cookies for each origin, regardless of their accessibility by the JavaScript engine. Once the cookies are gathered, the panel loads with comprehensive information, typically taking a second or two to complete these actions. You can then click on each origin to explore its associated cookies, with the editor displaying the currently selected cookie, enabling you to modify various properties.

    After installation, the action button may be concealed within the extensions panel. In such cases, you can right-click the button and opt to pin it to the toolbar for easy access.

  2. What is the meaning of each item in the editor section?

    • Name: the actual cookie name
    • Value: the actual value of the cookie
    • Path: this is useful to limit the cookie access to the specified path only (not all pages in the same domain will have access to this cookie). To ignore this option use "/" value.
    • Expiration date: this option will tell your browser when this cookie is supposed to be invalidated. This option is mandatory unless the cookie is set only for the current session which invalidates the cookie when the browser is closed.
    • HttpOnly: if this option is checked, JavaScript will not have access to this cookie
    • HostOnly: if the HostOnly flag is true and the canonicalized request-host is identical to the cookie's domain. If it is false and the canonicalized request-host domain-matches the cookie's domain.
    • Secure: if this option is checked, your browser will not provide the cookie in clear text format.

  3. How can I use this extension to modify an individual cookie?

    To edit a single cookie, begin by selecting it. The extension loads the cookie's properties in the editor section. After making the necessary adjustments, press the save button. Use the "Reset" button, if you need to revert to the original values, which disregards the current values and retrieves them from the stored cookie.

  4. What's new in this version?

    Please check the Logs section.

  5. How can I delete a cookie?

    Similar to the editing section, choose a single cookie and click the "Remove" button. It's important to note that removing a cookie is irreversible. However, you can recreate a new cookie with the same name and value if needed. For deleting multiple cookies, use the checkbox next to each cookie to select multiple items, then click the "Delete" button. You can also select all cookies with the "Select All" button.

  6. Is it possible to use this extension for importing or exporting cookies?

    Within the editor (popup interface), select the cookies you wish to export. The "Export" button will be visible in the toolbar area. Click this button to export the cookies in JSON format; the file will be saved in your browser's default download directory. If you intend to use these cookies with command-line utilities like Wget or Curl, hold the Shift key while exporting to generate a text version compatible with these tools. To import the JSON file, use right-click on the action button. There is an item for importing TXT and JSON-type files. Starting from version 0.1.4, you can also import cookies directly from the popup interface. Hold the Shift key while clicking the "New / Import" button within a domain section to import cookies for that domain. Please note that the import function only applies to a specific domain, and all new cookie entries must be manually saved by selecting the "Save" button when the cookie is chosen. This feature is particularly useful for importing domain-specific cookies. For importing cookies across different domains, use the tool on the right-click menu. While this page accepts the exported JSON format, both TEXT and JSON formats are accepted in the popup interface.

  7. Is it possible to search for cookies without opening the destination URL?

    Right-click the action button to access the context menu and select the search box option. Enter the domain you wish to search for, then press Enter. Cookie Editor will open in a new browser tab, displaying the cookies associated with the search query.

  8. What is the format of the "cookies.txt" file that this extension supports?

    The "cookies.txt" file is a plain text file format used to store HTTP cookies. Each line in the file represents a single cookie, and the format of each line is typically as follows:

    domain	TRUE	/path	FALSE	expiration_date	name	value
    1. domain: The domain that the cookie is valid for.
    2. TRUE/FALSE: Indicates if the cookie is accessible only via HTTPS ('TRUE') or both HTTP and HTTPS ('FALSE').
    3. /path: The URL path that the cookie is valid for.
    4. secure: Whether the cookie is readable by JavaScript or not
    5. expiration_date: The expiration date of the cookie in Unix time format.
    6. name: The name of the cookie.
    7. value: The value associated with the cookie.

    Each field is separated by a tab character (\t). It's important to note that the file format might slightly vary depending on the specific application or tool that generates or reads the "cookies.txt" file, but this is the general structure. Additionally, comments can be added to the file by starting a line with a "#" character.
