Can't access preferences



  • I reinstalled Cookie 5 and now cannot access its preferences. In fact, although it opens, I do not see the normal app commands at all in the menubar. How do I recover it?

    OS 10.12

    Ver 5.6



  • Also, Safari only shows 1 cookie while Firefox shows 66 cookies. How do I get them to match?  Is this related to not being able to see / access Cookies preferences?



  • What you need to do is open preferences using the key combo,
    COMMAND + ,
    Then on the “Advanced” tab UNCHECKRun Cookie in the background

    The cookie discrepancy will just be because all cookies for each browser are completely sandboxed and specific to each browser. So you need to visit all the sites you wish to favorite in each browser.
