Hi! I have Firefox 3.5 and i'm running it on Windows 7.

But some of the internet cookies don't want to delete. I went to the mozilla site for more information but nothing :(
How to delete the rest of the cookies?

For the normal cookies you can delete them directly in the cookie folder. Type SHELL:COOKIES into the start/search and hit Enter. For the tracking cookies, I recommend to run Ccleaner (which can also take care of the cookie folder if you check it).

I haven't tried this yet,

Edit. Navigate to the folders beyond C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia to find the cookies.

This looks interesting too,

Edit. I can confirm that bleachbit deletes flash cookies. I didn't try any of the other options tho.
