You can delete localStorage items one by one using Firebug (a useful web development extension) or Firefox's developer console.

Firebug Method

  1. Open Firebug (click on the tiny bug icon in the lower right)
  2. Go to the DOM tab
  3. Scroll down to and expand localStorage
  4. Right-click the item you wish to delete and press Delete Property

Developer Console Method

You can enter these commands into the console:

localStorage; // click arrow to view object's properties localStorage.removeItem("foo");  localStorage.clear(); // remove all of localStorage's properties 

Storage Inspector Method

Firefox now has a built in storage inspector, which you may need to manually enable. See rahilwazir's answer below.

To inspect your localStorage items you may type console.log(localStorage); in your javascript console (firebug for example or in new FF versions the shipped js console).

You can use this line of Code to get rid of the browsers localStorage contents. Just execute it in your javascript console:

As 'localStorage' is just another object, you can: create, view, and edit it in the 'Console'. Simply enter 'localStorage' as a command and press enter, it'll display a string containing the key-value pairs of localStorage (Tip: Click on that string for formatted output, i.e. to display each key-value pair in each line).
