IDing Cookies; by date

I hate the stock instruction I get to almost every tech issue:  "delete your cookies".  I have installed an Add-on to my FF browser that allows me to selectively remove cookies but I can't ID then because the names they have are so cryptic.  If I could determine the date they were added it would help but the Add-on doesn't have that header.

Is there a way to determine when a cookie was added to the list?

You can look in Tools -> Options -> Privacy and selection 'Custom History' and then look at your cookies.  It does not show when it was added, only when it expires.

Dave, I found the option here OptionCookie removal option and it does show the expiration date but it Also allows for the removal of Hx; based on time.  It's not very specific but it does provide an opportunity to remove very recent cookies; which is what I wanted to do.

Mike, I couldn't make out what to do with that Cookie Time stamp link so I'll give you credit for posting it but for it to be of any use it needed to be explained.

What was probably the best answer wasn't explained so it didn't really help me.
