After rebooting my computer I ended back in the loop again. I could download the app but was informed that the app was bad, delete and re-download. At that point I did reach out to Apple and the only thing they could come up with is that I should reinstall MacOS. This has fixed the problem, for now. The problem has hit me several times in the past several months.
FYI, before reinstalling I had a similar issue when trying to open 1Password to get my credentials for another site. So it isn't isolated to your app. In the future I will go straight for Apple Support.
Not sure what is happening to MacOS or why but it certainly is discouraging.
I do want to thank you for your timely response & for a great product.
@SweetP Hi Russell and thanks for your thoughts. I followed your suggestion but on a restart there was the old user account stuff. I'm really not sure if I shouldn't just hide (by making invisible) those recurring folders to get them off my mind and simply ignore them.
Cookie doesn't ask for your password at all, at least not directly. It has some receipt checking code, which checks if your App Store receipt is valid. This may prompt the OS to ask you to login to your account?
There is no additional cost to enable Safari. It is just a matter of installing the optional scripts, which if you are upgrading from an earlier version - you should already have installed.
For ppl have have never used Cookie, and are purchasing it for the first time (Mac App Store Only) they will need to enable Safari from the Advanced tab in Preferences - which has a link to the optional script download.
The Mac App Store version, still functions exactly the same as the version from my store... It is just more of a hassle to get up and running because of Mac App Store limitations.
