It's important to remember that Firefox stores cookies in a different place and format than Internet Explorer does.  Here is a Mozilla Wiki that describes where they are stored:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Cookies

Since they are stored much differently than Internet Explorer cookies, you would need some type of software utility or Firefox add-on to view them, similar to the following:

To be honest, your follow-up question is entering a realm that is well beyond my area of expertise and is only somewhat related to the original question.  It may be a good idea to start an entirely separate Experts Exchange question aimed at web gurus (ASP, etc.)
