• I am in background running mode; how do I access preferences ? I have nothing in the menu bar; the icon disappeared.

    Is there a mode with just menu bar icon ?

    Is there an option to only delete the tracking cookies automatically ?

  • if you use the Global Preferences hotkey:
    ⌘ + ,

    Then Disable "Run Cookie in the Background" on the Advanced tab,
    and use:
    Show Cookie in the MenuBar
    and Hide Dock Icon

    you can just check "Tracking Cookies" on the "Select Unwanted Data" tab in Cookie's main window
