modifying cookies in firefox

I would like to MODIFY cookies stored in firefox. I have ever tried to edit ~/.mozilla/firefox/default.078/cookies.txt and restarted firefox but firefox doesn't modify its cached cookies... Is it possible to modify cookies??
thanks for your help...

Just curious, but why would you need to modify cookies?

ah I want this just to pass a level in a challenge. I didn't manage to modify cookie directly in the browser but I did it with DNAT (iptables) to my own local site and putting cookies with apache; browser believes it is on real site...
