    Reading existing cookies

    Cookies for a given host, represented as objects, can be enumerated as such:

    let enum = Services.cookies.getCookiesFromHost("");
    while (enum.hasMoreElements()) {
      var cookie = e.getNext().QueryInterface(Ci.nsICookie2); 
      dump( + ";" + + "=" + cookie.value + "\n");

    All cookies, regardless of host, can be enumerated using Services.cookies.enumerator rather than getCookiesFromHost().

    The following code demonstrates how to set a cookie in Firefox.

    Services.cookies.add("", "/cookie-path", "cookie_name", "cookie_value", is_secure, is_http_only, is_session, expiry_date);
