Typically this path should look like this:
Mozilla or SeaMonkey: C:\Documents And Settings\%USERPROFILE%\ApplicationData\Mozilla\default\%PROFILEFOLDER%
Firefox: C:\Documents And Settings\%USERPROFILE%\ApplicationData\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\%PROFILEFOLDER%
- C:\Documents And Settings\John\ApplicationData\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\js786alk.default
- C:\Documents And Settings\kate\ApplicationData\Mozilla\default\6sn16oa4.slt
After selecting a profile folder from the drop down list, click Next to view the cookies.
