Cookie 5.9.4 Not showing Web Sites visited



  • I am attempting to get out of trouble after having had several problems with Hardware-Software combos. Cookie has been caught up in the ensuing mess. At some point in the Reinstallation or Restoring of macOS, unnoticed because my focus was elsewhere, Cookie became separated from the Favourites List.
    Q 1. Is it possible to salvage Itjhr Favourites List from an earlier OS Drive?

    Reading about the requirements to enable Cookie and Safari to function together I think all the directions were duly followed but:

    ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.sweetpproductions.Cookie5/

    cannot be found. There seemed little harm in trying so this Folder was created and the 3 Files generated during the process were placed inside it. This has not helped the situation.
    On an earlier revisit of my unlocked OS Drive, adding Cookie to 'Accessibility' mentioned below, along with the Folder creation above, did not resolve the problem.
    Q 2. I was unable to find the 'Full Permissions' window/field/area and assumed:

    System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility

    was the same place by a different name?

    I also discovered that the OS Drive in use will not allow me to access:

    System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility

    so that Cookie can be added and provided with essential permissions.
    This is due to the installation of a YubiKey and seems to be part of the Yubico Self Preservation Society, in that it is determined not to leave any back doors open that could allow the protection to be defeated.
    I have another similar OS Drive that is not, yet, YubiKey protected and this could be utilised to help resolve this if there is nil alternative solution.
    Q 3. Is there anything toward getting Cookie fully operational on the 'locked' drive or is it essential for me to abandon it and set up the unlocked drive?

    Q 4. Lastly is it likely that a reinstallation of Cookie will resolve this problem?

    Any help very welcome, thank you.

    Best regards, G



  • I have started afresh.
    It would be useful to learn if Favourites can be captured from earlier installations.

  • You can restore favourites, if you have a time machine backup. You can restore this folder:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.sweetpproductions/Cookie5/data/Library/Application Support/Cookie5
