Cookie 6 not recognizing "Full disk Access"
I continue to struggle with granting Cookie "Full Disk Access". No matter how many times I go through the process, I continue to get the attached error message when I launch the Cookie interface. Please advise. Thank you.
macOS 10.15.2 (19C57)
Do you always run Safari in Private browsing mode? If so, then the Cookies.binaryCookies file most likely does not exist.
Another thing to consider - Cookie does need to be in the Applications folder.
@SweetP Thank you for your reply.
Safari is never in private mode.
Cookie.app is in /Applications.
Where should Cookies.binaryCookies be located? I cannot find it anywhere.
@HFTobeason it should be here:
The ~ means it is in you user folder, which you can access like so:
@SweetP This worked for me.
@LEoM I restarted with no luck. Stuck in an infinite loop trying to "Enable" for Safari.
I had this problem after initially upgrading to Cookie6 but it was resolved.
BUT NOW, after allowing AppStore to upgrade me to 6.0.12, I am back in the loop of having to grant access.
System level is macOS 10.15.3
Cookie does have full disk access. I have quit Cookie, removed disk access, restarted system. Doesn't help.
I have had to disable Cookie to get ANY work done.

@StuFried does the cookie file exist?
@SweetP Yes it does. But it has a creation date of today. Unless it is destroyed at browser quit I would have expected it to have an older creation date
@SweetP Its been 4 days since I answered your question. Any ideas?
@SweetP Hey @SweetP,
Wanted to update that I stopped the app, removed the permissions, removed application (using AppCleaner), restarted my computer, downloaded the app from the App Store.
Now I can not even enable Safari (Firefox and Chrome are OK), and it STILL does not recognize that it has "Full Disk Access" granted
@StuFried are you running Safari in private browsing mode?
