This is an asynchronous function that returns a Promise.

1. Always returns the same default cookie store with ID 0. All cookies belong to this store.

2. Before version 52, only the default cookie store was visible. From version 52 onwards, the cookie stores for private browsing mode and container tabs are also readable.


In the following snippet, the getAllCookieStores() method is used to retrieve all the cookie stores currently available in the browser, and print out each cookie store ID, and the tabs that currently share each cookie store.

function logStores(cookieStores) {
  for (let store of cookieStores) {
    console.log(`Cookie store: ${}\n Tab IDs: ${store.tabIds}`);

var getting = browser.cookies.getAllCookieStores();

Each member of the cookieStores array is a cookies.CookieStore object.
