El Capitan Beta



  • on beta 6 cookie doesn't load at startup although the preference is checked.



  • thanks for the feedback

    ill look into this



  • Hi Russell,

    I noticed that 4.4h does not remove Safari cache in Beta 6. See the attached screenshot for "proof".

  • On version h, cookies are not being saved. I have it set to delete all non-favorite on safari quit, but even favorite ones are being deleted. Sometimes a couple stick around but more often than not, everything is gone. The favorites still show up in the list but there are 0 cookies attached to the favorite and they are greyed out.



  • Same issue here - 4.4h is NOT saving cookies in OS X 10.11 Beta (15A262e). All items are greyed out.



  • It also takes an extremely long time for new cookies to show up in the cookie window. Back on stable release, i would log into a new site, open the cookie window right away to mark it as a favorite and it was already there. now under beta h, it takes at least 30 seconds for the cookie to show up in the cookie window to mark it as a favorite (even though it doesn't matter at this point because its not saving them anyways haha)



  • hmmm,

    Apple has removed official support for cookie access in El Capitan, and I've had to access them manually. reading the cookie file is not so difficult, however Apple has added a security key to the file making writing to the cookie file extremely difficult....
    (well the difficulty is not so much the in the writing of the file, but in having Safari accept the newly written cookie file as being legitimate)

    I'll take another look, and see if i can find a better solution.

    I also haven't looked into cache removal yet.



  • If it's of any help, here's a sample of what my entire "Cookie Window" list looks like:

    Note that every line is grayed out.

    Thanks.



  • I just had an idea, and ill try it out tonight....
    If it works, ill post a new beta next week sometime.

    Any luck?



  • My idea works.... But not in the sandbox....
    I'll keep refining my current implementation



  • Hey guys,

    I have a new beta here:
    Cookie44i.zip

    it fixes the cache removal

    can i get some feedback on this one so i can get a version ready for when El Cap lands in a couple weeks.
    thanks!

    Safari cookie removal will silently fail while Safari is running!!!!!!
    (Safari) cookie removal while Safari is running will cause Safari crashes - and total cookie loss.

    I haven't updated the UI yet, but all attempts to removal cookies while Safari is running will silently fail. 😞

    all other browsers work as expected.
    🙂



  • sorry guys,

    4.4i had a serious bug when removing tracking cookies, Ive fixed this in v4.4j:
    Cookie44j.zip



  • Well like I mentioned before, Cookie doesn't load automatically anymore, you either have to start it manually or add it to the login items by hand



  • heres another fix for tracking cookie removal: Cookie44k.zip



  • Hi,

    Cookie 4.4k on 10.11.1 public beta removes cookies only when quitting Safari; using the 'delete non-favorites'-button does not work.



  • Hi,

    Cookie 4.4k on 10.11.1 public beta removes cookies only when quitting Safari; using the 'delete non-favorites'-button does not work.

    This is done on purpose..... modifying the binaryCookies file while Safari is running causes cookie loss. In the official 4.4 build, I have added a warning panel. in 4.4.1, ill make it even more clear in the UI that Safari 9 on El Capitan has this limitation.



  • Cookie 4.4 is now officially available in the Mac App Store and on my http://sweetpproductions.com.

    Thanks for all your help!
