    Step 2: Click on 'Privacy'

    Step 3: You will see 'Firefox will:'. Set it to 'Use custom settings for history.'

Select 'Everything' for the 'Time Range To Clear' option. Click on the downward arrow located next to 'Details'. This will open up the list of items. Click 'Cookies' and make sure all the other items are unselected. Click on the 'Clear Now' button at the bottom. Close your 'Clear Recent History' window.

    Opera
    How to clear cookies in Opera

    Originally marketed as a 'fast' browser, Opera has developed quite a loyal, albeit small, following throughout the years. Follow these steps to manage your Opera browser cookies.

    Step 1: Click 'Settings' at the top of your Opera browser.

    Step 2: Click 'Preferences' and select 'Advanced'

    Step 3: In the 'Advanced' screen, select 'Cookies'

    Step 4: At this point, you can select one of three options: accept all cookies (this is the default setting), accept cookies only from sites you visit, and never accept cookies. If you block cookies, most of the sites you visit will stop working. This is usually not a good choice. Your best default choice is to accept cookies only from sites you visit. This blocks cookies set by advertising networks and other third party sites. These third party sites set cookies to track your movements across sites to enhance their ad targeting capabilities.

    Step 5: Select 'Delete new cookies when exiting Opera'. If you want to use a specific website but don't want to keep any cookies for that site between your visits, select this option. It is not a good idea to use this option for sites you visit frequently.

    Thank You,
