Description

5 years ago
Mozilla browsers previously stored cookies in a text file named cookies.txt.  Many other browsers and networking software (Internet Explorer, wget, etc.) subsequently adopted this format.  However, Firefox and SeaMonkey no longer use a cookies.txt file to store the cookies, and their cookie managers provide no means of importing or exporting cookies from/to such a format (or any other format, for that matter).

Please consider adding the ability to import and export cookies from/to the old cookies.txt format.  This will help interoperability with other popular browsers and networking software.

(It seems there is a cookies.txt exporter extension for Firefox, though there doesn't appear to be anything for SeaMonkey.  I'm also not aware of any cookies.txt importer.)

Not with SeaMonkey it doesn't. :(
