are there tracking cookies in your blog?
if so, you most likely need to whitelist them:
pause any timers in Cookie
login to your blog
expand the domain in Cookie by clicking the small triangle
look for any RED colored tracking cookies
right click (control-click) on the tracking cookies
select "Add to Whitelist"
re-enable your timers
Hi Russel - well, we can't whitelist all red cookies, right? Doesn't this defeat the purpose of cookie?
Also, I believe Safari history may be the source of these issues.
I always tell Safari to "clear history but keep website data." Even so, when I subsequently try to log into Twitter, Facebook etc. the websites often think I'm registering a new device
Yep, it just happened again. I did "clear history but keep website data" and suddenly Twitter can't recognize my device. I just whitelisted both "ga" and "gat" - are either of those cookies "tracking" cookies?
@nate it is technically possible to edit cookies in Cookie, I just haven't implemented the ability. In the 8yrs I have been working on Cookie, you are only maybe the 2nd or 3rd person to ask for the feature. So its not really a priority for me to implement.
the cookie script isn't needed on Mojave anymore, as Apple has changed how the cookie storage works. This change also affects the effectiveness of removing cookies while Safari is open.
Session cookies aren't visible externally for any browser as far as I know.
@SweetP haha no worries, glad the image upload in your forum is working again.
cache is not set to be deleted so I can safely rule that out. it seems cookies are again showing up e.g. I am seeing an entry for this forums URL. I am unsure as to what was going on initially. I think we can consider this solved. I'll ping, if this happens again with another site.
Thanks for making cookie 😃
I just saw the icon preload on a new site I visited before the site favicon loaded. I don't think Cookie is removing it - as I also remove favicons regularly in my install. I also didn't see any trace of the default favicon in the Favicon Cache folder
Do you remove favicons while Safari is open at all?
have you tried disabling Cookie for a restart of Safari, to see if the file is recreated
Found a mac system preferences option for spotlight to disable search results in the "bookmarks & history" category, which fixes the issue. Who knows if safari history is still accumulating in this location behind the scenes though.. If so maybe a future cookie update could address this?
@SweetP Got it eventually. A couple of app crashes, some unresponsive dialogue boxes and a restart later, everything is now working again. (Although I had to reselect all my favourites manually. Thanks for the quick responses.
I had not noticed it was working already because i was running the Beta version.
If it's a small addition, please consider adding the Beta version as well. It doesn't currently work. ( https://brave.com/download-beta/ )
I'm assuming it's not currently working because the different installation path:
