  1. For firefox the best way to do this is to load the Storage Tab in the Developer tools (check in the settings if this is not enabled). Down the left hand side there are sections for Cache Storage, Cookies, Indexed DB, Local Storage and Session Storage. Right clicking on the domain under Cookies presents an option to delete all cookies for that domain.
