Cookie 5 deletes Favorites as well

  • 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 v5.0.10.8 to Apple for review as what will become v5.0.11.

    Hopefully it will be reviewed asap.

  • This beta version ( 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/
    and search for Cookie, look for something similar to what is below, then can you paste it back in here.

  • the latest beta has some logging enabled to hopefully catch this bug in action, and give me a clue as to what is happening:

  • Update: I am still on the version that is supposed to crash when favorites are deleted. This morning, my favorites selections were all gone but there was no crash. Some of my favorite cookies hadn't yet been deleted, but the selections were cleared.

  • is this on version:
    you can check in the About Cookie Menu Item

  • This is on version 5.0.12. I'll upgrade if you'd like me to see if that takes care of it.

  • if you could try the latest Beta that would be great, Im trying to fix this exact issue:

  • if you could try the latest Beta that would be great, Im trying to fix this exact issue:

    I can no longer use these betas because it says "trial expired".

    Recall, I normally use the Mac App Store version. I have been using the betas you post here (until today, that is, when my "trial" expired).

  • send me an email to [[email protected]][email protected][/email] and ill send you a license to use

  • thanks for the feedback,
    from all the stack-traces i received the bug "appears" to be fixed.
    Ive just uploaded v5.0.12.7 which removes the debugging code.
    please do let me know if you still get crashes.

    this will become v5.1 if nothing is found.

  • Awesome, thanks! I was just about to send you a couple of stack traces I found, but if you've solved the problem, then all the better!

  • Fingers crossed!
    I havnt heard back from any beta testers about problems so far.
