    Hi Sue,

    Personally I have never found keeping cookies helps speed http loading, so have always deleted them. You do this via whichever web browser you are using,

    Firefox
    Open Firefox and go to Tools > Options > Click Privacy > Click the "Show Cookies" button and then click the Remove All Cookies button.
    Seamonkey
    Tools > Cookie Manager > Manage Stored Cookies
    Opera
    Open the File menu > Select Preferences to open Dialog box > Choose "Privacy" button > Select "Manage Cookies" > Select one or more cookies you want to remove and click the "Delete" button.

    Hi Sue,


    I have just thought depending on the FF version it could also be under Edit > Preferences > Privacy

    For firefox its ctrl+shift+delete, and you can get firefox to auto delete on closing by edit, preferences, privacy and tick the box..
