  1. In IE, "File -> Import and Export -> Export Cookies".
  2. Open newly exported "cookies.txt" in a text editor and put a period before every line that starts with a domain. So a line starting with "altavista.com TRUE / FALSE 1388491200 AV_ALL 1" will become ".altavista.com TRUE / FALSE 1388491200 AV_ALL 1"
  3. Then, move the "cookies.txt" file to your profile folder.
