Two options exists. The easiest for most people is to create a second
profile in FF and install sqlite manager in that profile. You can
then start that profile and run sqlite manager from it and point it to
the cookies.sqlite file from your default profile.

The second option is to install sqlite manager as a stand alone
XulRunner application. You can get the latest version of it at

And you can get sqlite manager at http://code.google.com/p/sqlite-manager/
