El Capitan Beta



  • 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.

    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!
