    how to set cookies on browser through javascript

    when I surf http://www.youtube.com/html5/?gl=FR&hl=fr
    and click "join youtube html5"
    I will notice that the visit creates a cookie on my firefox browser

    the information is as follows, where "f1=40000000&f2=40000000" is the key

    I want to create a blank html page which has javascript codes
    when I visit this html page, I hope it will set the same cookies for me
    I mean the domain is "youtube.com" and the content is f1=40000000&f2=40000000
    expiry time is not important, as long as it can be maintained before the browser is closed
    the reason for me to do this is at the end if you want to know
    how to write the code? thanks

    Host:                 .youtube.com
    Name:                 PREF
    Path:                 /
    Content:              f1=40000000&f2=40000000
    Content raw:          f1=40000000&f2=40000000
    Expires:              At end of session
    Expires raw:          0
    Send for:             Encrypted connections only
    Send for raw:         true

    reason for doing this: the modified firefox will delete all cookies when it is closed, and I want to do some repeated test by scripts, so I want to use script to make this firefox to visit the created blank html page to get the cookie

    I make a html file called test.html, and then I use firefox to open it, but I can't find any cookies related to my script on firefox, what is wrong with my html and javascript code?

          JavaScript Example 1 -- Hello World
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function writeCookie() 
     var content="f1=40000000&f2=40000000";
     var domain = "youtube.com";
     var name = "PREF";
     var path = "/";
     var the_cookie  = "name="+name+";content="+content+";domain="+domain+";path="+path+";expires=0;";
     document.cookie = the_cookie;
