Resource hogging by Cookie beta

  • I've had to quit using Cookie, as it is spiking CPU usage to 140% or so. 
    MacBook cycles from 0% to 140%, iMac remains steady at around 130%.
    "App busy" spinning graphic appears in Cookie window. 
    But it's not frozen, as I can still delete tracking cookies in this state.

    El Capitan 10.11.4,  Cookie beta, running current Firefox and Safari

  • Do you have many chrome/chromium users?

  • I'm having the same problems. I can restart Cookie and it will move down to 0% CPU. But once it gets active, the CPU stays at 90-120% with a spinning disc in the Cookie window.

    Cookie 5.0.3
    OS 10.11.5
    iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)
    3.4 GHz Intel Core i5

  • try upgrading to Cookie 5.0.8 or even the latest beta (

  • I am using 5.0.8 and having the same problem. I have 13 Chrome users, and when I disable Chrome, the problem vanishes.

  • Try upgrading to 5.0.10 and see if that helps.
