    Russell,

    My testing shows that it's the SID cookie that holds the login info, not the NID one. What's odd is that after adding that to my whitelist and relaunching Safari, it appears that I'm logged out of YouTube again. But, clicking on the "sign in" button logs me back in without having to enter name/password. It's as if the site doesn't automatically recognize the SID cookie. It has to be directed to it by clicking "sign in". Something like that - I don't know exactly how it works.

    Thanks for the help!
    Tom

    Hi Greg,

    version 3.0.24 wasnโ€™t meant to be releasedโ€ฆ.
    I found bugs, which have since been fixed.
    but iTunes has been down for the holidays, and I couldn't cancel the release

    I apologize for the inconvenience.
    3.0.25 should be available early next week.

    If you just move it to the trash,
    open the App Store, log in to the account you purchased Cookie with.
    then go to your "Purchases" tab,

    you should be able to re-download.

    sorry, I only just saw this.

    you can export your Whitelist/Blacklist/Tracking cookies definitions from the "Advanced Cookie Definitions" window.
    just right click in the cookie window and select the option: "Open Advanced Cookie Editor" to show it.

    for Safari Cookies,

    try reinstalling, and do a custom install,
    make sure SIMBL is checked.

    restart Safari.
    load up a url (important)
    then open Safari's preferences.
    you will see a cookie icon, that is Safari Cookies preferences.
    (you may need to click the 2 small arrows at the right of the preferences window to see it)

    Alan,

    I had the same frustration and solved it this way...

    within the cookie window:

    select your optout cookies and add to whitelist (there are instructions for this in Cookie's help window if needed). uncheck boxes for the 1,000,000 cookies sort by favorites: click the favorites column header aka โค and you'll see checked+unchecked boxes toggle up/down as you click.

    henceforth Cookie will remove all non-favorites as usual but ignore the whitelisted cookies!

    two things: first, this is not an ideal situation but solves your problem as described.
    second (and most important!!) you've probably had the opt-out domains favorited for a while- it's likely that those folders have numerous non opt-out cookies within; you REALLY don't want to whitelist those ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If you have questions as to how to discern between opt-out cookies and the other cookies, reply and I'll attempt to explain. Many have "opt" or "0-cookie" in their name. If you're wondering why a domain you opted out of is still adding cookies, cringe a little and read everything below my signature.

    Alright, that's my mostly imperfect "help". Cookie is an exceptional application and can be tamed enough for your situation. Many thanks to Russell- you've created something splendid ๐Ÿ˜„ !

    [u]Okay guys and gals- here's some further info for you on tracking:[/u]

    I revamped my privacy setup (and deleted all optout cookies) after reading a lengthy publication on identity tracking a few months ago. I think it was MIT...or a group in Germany...oi! I'll track it down if anyone wants to read it.
    Basically, the more clutter you have attached to your browser the more identifiable you are. The optouts are numerous, hence "trackable" (your plug-ins, extensions, and many other bits of data contribute substantially too).

    You can avoid half the mess with a combination of Cookie and a few browser extensions; Little Snitch can be a great add-on too.

    To start, check out the brilliant and VERY brief http://fixtracking.com for links and info- it's well worth it!

    My recommendatios are similar to theirs: wrangle flash, hide from big tracking companies, and eliminate the unneeded javascript.

    Try using a combination of donottrackme from Abine, Mark Hoyois' Clicktoplugin, and Noscript for firefox or Safari javascript blocker from Toggleable. AdBlock plus is handy but page loads can lag (or did for me). Just say no to Ghostery.
    Any javascript blocker for your browser will change everything: Cookie shows 1/3 the number of cookies being loaded and Little Snitch rarely says a thing not that it's not fending off a barrage of scripted ads..

    Sadly, you need to be a bit tech savvy to run either a javascript blocker or Little Snitch without it turning into a complete hassle. That said, your privacy is worth it!

    good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    All you need to do is move Cookie.app to the trash. if you want to do a clean install, also delete:
    ~/Library Application Support/Cookie (favourites)
    ~/Library/Prefences/com.sweetpproductions.Cookie.plist (settings)

    *you will lose all your settings, and favourites if you remove these two files.

    you will then be able to open the App Store, login, and re-download from the "Purchases" tab.
