C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies.

You need to make sure to enable hidden files and folders. Make sure "Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)" is UNCHECKED

Firefox is C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{user profile}\cookies.txt

Hello mmarth,

In Firefox, you can remove cookies from the Options menu.  Go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Show Cookies button. Highlight the cookies that you do want. Click "Remove Cookie".

Hope this helps!
