I am writing a java applet that shows FireFox cookies. How to open the cookies.sqlite of FireFox 5 and read that database in Java?

I successfuly accessed cookies.sqlite of Firefox 3 but can't do it with versions 3+
I tried with org.sqlite.JDBC driver but without success. And got exception: file is encrypted or is not a database.
Is it necessary to decrypt the file first or get a permission?
I tried SqlJetDb and it gives exception "org.tmatesoft.sqljet.core.SqlJetException: NOTADB: error code is NOTADB"

Is there anything else do the task of showing FireFox5 cookies?

Just in case anybody will need it I have downloaded the latest sqlite jdbc 3.7.2 and now everything works fine.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
