[Tips and Tricks] Fix Firefox not letting you log into Twitter

I wanted to try out the new Firefox 29. But I came across a little problem when I tried to log into Twitter. Even though the username and the password were correct (I checked in Chrome), it did not let me in. I didn't get an error message or anything. It just stayed there without doing anything.

Seemed like a cookie going bad. And it was. It fix was simple.

All I had to do was to open Tools -> Options and go into Privacy Tab. There is an option in that page where you can remove individual cookies.

I searched for the word "Twitter" and removed all the cookies that came up as the search result. There were a lot!

After doing that, I could log into Twitter. Bad cookie.
