Cookie, Safari and El Capitan



  • Cookie v4.4.2

    Cookie no longer appears to delete Non-Favorite & Tracking Cookies using the "Remove All Unwanted Safari Data" menu item. I now have to remove each of the above listed items individually. Hope this is something that is addressed in v4.5.

    Thanks for any/all help. Love Cookie. Sorry that Apple is making all of us nuts!



  • v4.5 was just released and appears to address all of my issues. I'm happy! Thank you, Russell!



  • So far, so good — 4.5 is working under ElCap. I have not seen the corruption issue so far.

    Nice Work!



  • Cookie 4.5 working well for me also in El Capitan. Thanks for the update.

    I do see an issue in Console log though. Every time Cookie refreshes itself (every few seconds) it fills the log with a couple hundred new entries. Just in the last few minutes I have stacked up thousands of these entires completely pushing out any other normal log entries.

    You can see a screenshot below.



  • I have a different issue. When I upgraded to El Capitan, all continues to work as had in the past as far as saving the cookies I wanted. Since I recently upgraded Cookie, I now need to re-login to most every site. It is not keeping the cookies in Safari it seems as it doesn't remember I was logged in just minutes ago.
    Any thoughts on troubleshooting steps that should be done?
    Thanks



  • I'm having the same issue as schnide with the newest version 4.5. Passwords are not being retained for most sites although a couple are retained using Safari.

    I am also having the same issue with 4.5 and 10.11.1. Cookie data may be saved, but it's not working. None of my automatic logins work. Hope this can be fixed quickly.

    After more usage today, I am seeing the same thing. What is odd though is from looking at Cookie it does not appear the actual cookies for the sites are being removed, so I don't understand why this is happening.

    With the earlier El Capitan bug, the cookies were getting corrupted and removed, so having to reenter the login was expected. But now the cookies are still there, yet I still have to login again.

    Related question for Russell... this would all be less annoying if I could just restore my cookies from backup. I see where the binary file is in ~/Library/Cookies but a restore does not appear to work. I see web info talking about shutting down cookied to allow a cookie file restore in Yosemite, but El Capitan does not appear to have that process.

    Have you found a way to restore the Cookies.binarycookies file in El Capitan?



  • I'm having the same issue as above since updating.

    Favourite site cookies are not keeping me logged in like they were before the update. Need to log in every time I start Safari.



  • v4.5 is still broken, and can cause cookie loss....
    😞

    but v4.5.1 has been uploaded for review and restores full full functionality to Cookie. It will be available in around a week i guess.

    Thanks for the update Russell.

    Can you comment on my question about restoring cookies from backup under El Capitan. It seems to be prohibited by some unknown process (like cookiesd did in Yosemite).



  • You can restore the BinaryCookies file, but you also need to restart the nsurlstoraged process for any changes to be effective.

    Thanks for the tip. That is the piece I was missing.

    Sounds great, but where is 4.5.1 for those of us who get it from your site and not the app store?

    Thanks



  • here you go:

    i won't officially release it till the MAS version is approved. Otherwise i end up with a full inbox asking why MAS users can't get it yet...



  • Thanks for the update. I am now having a problem with Cookie 4.5.1 closing every time I choose to "Remove" anything from the dropdown menu. It is not crashing...only closing down the app.

    I found the same problem. Also happens when I quit Safari.



  • I also noticed Cookie was closing down when quitting Safari, a reboot fixed the issue for me though.

    Thank you for fixing the cookie loss issue.

    edit: never mind, it started closing again when I quit Safari.



  • Ive just uploaded v4.5.2 to my site, and requested an expedited review for the Mac App Store.

    Yeah... I'm seeing the same crash on app store 4.5.2. On the plus side though, it no longer corrupts the cookies database. 😉
