Cookie 5 deletes Favorites as well
this seems strange,
do you both use other cleaning utilities?
Onyx, Privacy Scan, Privacy Guard, iCleanup Pro etc....
none of these other apps will respect Cookie's settings and will wipe all data just as you are experiencing.
I am having this same problem.
My favorites are deleted multiple times daily. In fact, there is now no reason to select favorites. This bug makes the application useless.
I do not use any of the cleaning utilities mentioned above.

Could you try this build:
It should (hopefully)crash when you lose all favourites.
If you open
And search for Cookie, you should find a link to the crash report, if you could send me the crash report(s), that should give me hopefully a clue....
Will do, thank you.
The build you supplied works perfectly.
I am having problems with the Mac AppStore version (that I purchased)
ok, please send me any crash reports when it crashes.
heres my email address for any crash logs:
This build does not delete my favorites and does not crash. The Mac App Store version, however, does delete my favorites. What should I do?
can you try this beta to see if it also works for you:
I've just installed the crashy version. I'll let you know soon!
I went back to the Mac App Store version, and it deleted my favorites again. I have now deleted that version entirely from my computer.
I have just installed this beta:
And I will let you know how it goes.
So far feedback seems that the bug has been fixed.
As this seems to be quite a problem for a number of users - I've uploaded v22.214.171.124 to Apple for review as what will become v5.0.11.
Hopefully it will be reviewed asap.
This beta version (126.96.36.199) has not deleted my favorites in the past 12+ hours. So far so good.
Update: 5.0.11 (Mac App Store) is working well. No more deletion of favorites. Thanks for fixing this!
im not sure its completely fixed in the Mac App Store version yet...
Im waiting to hear back from someone using a test version.
its here if you're interested:
is this still happening in v5.0.12?
I've been using the test (crashy) version for 9 days now, with no crashes or favorites deletions.
Yes. It's back.
My favorites were safe during the time I had 5.0.11 (App Store version) installed, but they were just deleted in 5.0.12 (App Store version).

can you try this build:
when you notice your favs all gone (if they disappear) can you open up ?Applications/Utilities/Console.app
and search for Cookie, look for something similar to what is below, then can you paste it back in here.
