• 4.4.1.1 is an improvement but some issues remain. Firstly, I got one repeat of the same failure to shutdown with the subsequent kernel panic error window. However I could not in the short time I have available reproduce this but it clearly remains an issue. Also, as others have pointed out it's not possible to delete cookies when Safari is running.


  • I installed 4.4.2 and there remains a problem on OS X 10.11. On a MBP, with Safari quit and Cookie running if I do a Shutdown the machine immediately restarts and a kernel panic warning appears. This is the same symptom as previously reported on 4.4.1 and interim 4.4.1.1. If Cookie is quit then Shutdown completes as normal and no restart.


  • Hello again. I want to reopen an earlier report a few weeks ago about a system crash on shutdown that appears to be caused by Cookie. As I explained I did a clean nuke 'n pave ElCap and have since updated to OS X 10.11.1. I installed the latest Cookie version 4.5.2 but if I try to shut down the machine via the Shut Down command under the Apple icon in the menubar it does not completely shutdown (no spinning wheel) but restarts twice with a blue screen saying "there seems to be a problem with your system" (or words to that affect). When I quit Cookie then shutdown is normal with the usual spinning wheel for about 5 or 10secs followed by a complete shutdown. This is repeatable on a Macbook Pro and Macbook Air. Do you need more info from me to fix this problem?


  • An update regarding the shutdown crash...

    After the machine restarted twice I got an error message saying Mail had run out of application memory. Other app were similarly "paused" so I quit Cookie and restarted and all was then back to normal. I hope this feedback is useful to you in your development. I no longer use Cookie 4.x. and look forward to release of v5.


  • could you give this version a try, and let me know if it helps:

  • 4.5.3.1 launches and quits and no problem shutting down. Favorites can be managed while Safari is running and are retained on quit/relaunch. GREAT. I hope my feedback will help you with release of 5.x


  • thats good news!
    just waiting on feedback on another issue before i release this officially.
    ill also roll this fix into v5.

    thanks for being so persistent with your reporting the bug.
