Clear Cookies, Site Data, Cache for specific website in Chrome, Firefox

At times, you may feel the need to delete or clear the Cookies & Site Data for a specific website only – and not the entire Browsing History – especially if you face errors like 400 Bad Request. We have already seen how to Clear Cookies, Site Data & Cache for a particular domain in Internet Explorer. Now let us see how to do it in Chrome and Firefox browsers.

Normally, we simply the entire Cookie cache of that browser. This will mean that, when you exercise this option, you will be clearing all the Cookies. But if you don’t do this, you will have to clear the Cookie for that particular domain only.

Clear Cookies & Site Data for specific website in Chrome

Open your Google Chrome browser and then open its Settings. Scroll down till you see Advanced. Click on it.  Scroll down till you see Privacy & Security.

Now click on the Content settings button. You will see a new panel pop-up with settings for Cookies right on the top. Click on Cookies.

You will see an item See all cookies and site data. Click on it to open the following panel.

Clear Cache & Cookies for specific website in Chrome

 

Here you can search for the domain and remove its Cookies & site data by clicking on the Bin icon.

If you click on the arrow icon against the Cookie, the following panel will open.

Here you will be able to see the details of the locally stored data, as well as delete it.

There is another way. When a web page is open, click on the padlock icon to open a flyer and then select Cookies.

You will then see the Cookies in use, and you will be able to delete them.

If you are an Internet Explorer user, see this post: Delete Temporary Internet Files & Cookies for a particular domain.

If you are a Microsoft Edge user, then this browser does not let you delete cache for particular websites. You will have to delete the entire Browsing History & Cache.

You can also use CookieSpy, a freeware that lets you manage Cookies of all Browsers in one place. Use it to delete Cookies from a particular domain.

    Thank you Andy! There have been numerous times, when I only wanted to clear the cache on one or two websites. I never knew how with either Chrome or Firefox. I don’t use Firefox anymore, due to the issues of what forced Brendan Eich to resign. At that time, I started to use Chrome only. Again, thank you.

    Very useful. Because many programs like CCleaner gives way to clean all cookies as a whole. This gives selective.

    As far as I can tell, none of this actually deletes the cache for a specific site, which is what you advertised and what I wanted. :/

    This… doesn’t explain how to delete domain specific cache in Firefox. Cookies =/= cache.
