Steps to reproduce:

Not sure why this doesn't exist, but in a day and age where so many sites use cookies in order to profile users, we should have the ability to remove cookies within the Page menu or within the long-press AwesomeBar dialog.

Hello,

In Settings Menu exist two methods to clear cookies:
1. Settings -> Clear private date and you can check Cookies&Active logins.
2. Settings -> Privacy -> Clear private data on exit -> check Cookies&Active logins.
Also, in Privacy menu you have Cookies with three options: Enabled, Disabled and Enabled, excluding 3rd party.

Those do in fact exist, but what's missing is the ability to clear cookies from a specific site/domain. Let's say a user wants to keep all of their cookies but delete the cookies from instagram, what are they to do?

Whilst developing sites with offline storage (e.g. IndexedDB) I was looking for a way to wipe a specific site's data as well. This is possible on desktop and on other Android browsers (e.g. Chrome, Samsung Internet). I think this issue should also be about other non-cookie data being stored for a site as such technologies have been gaining traction. This issue is the closest I could find for that.
