Oddly enough the timer started to work after I made the original post. I did not see any update or download. It just started working. I could tell it was working because previously when I quit a browser it would not remove cookies, etc. that I marked for removal by the timer, and when I quit a browser. In the cookie window when I quit a browser it now deletes all the unwanted information from the internet activity for the fist time in a long time.
When I originally started using Cookie I thought it was great. It blocked all the cookies except my favorites. IN Version 5.0.5 I selected everything in "Select Unwanted Data for REMOVAL From Your Browser". See attachment Under removal options I set it to delete everything every 5 minutes and whenever I quit a browser. When I quit my browser there are still tons of unwanted cookies, including tracking cookies, still showing in the Cookie window. I go in and delete all of them individually. Why isn't Cookie deleting these cookies when I quit the Safari? Why am I getting cookies from non-favorite websites? Why am I getting cookies for third parties that I do not visit?
Why isn't it deleting every 5 minutes?
It is nice to see the cookies so I can delete them but Cookies does not appear to be doing anything automatically.
As it turns out the issue had nothing to do with Cookie. Probably a coincidence that I installed Cookie at about the same time that the issue showed up. I did a bunch of work to find out what was going on. I finally figured out it must be a Flash issue.
A short while ago some random update site started updating my Flashplayer. I accidentally allowed it because I thought it was from Adobe. It was not from Adobe. I tried to disable the updater site which kept taking me to different sites every X number of times I started Safari. It did not work very well.
I eventually just deleted every thing associated with Flash and then some. At some point something or, maybe me, disabled Allow plug-ins in Safari preferences. That would not allow the fresh Flash to work. I enabled the Allow plug-ins setting in Safari Preferences. Everything, including Cookie, is now working fine.
question:I whitelisted all the "tracking" cookies for iheart but it did not make any difference.
The iHeard site actually logs me into their system. I can see my user name at the top but it won't let me play any of the stations.
Is whitelisting the tracking cookies one at a time really going to make any difference since I already whitelisted all of them.
Using Safari 8.03
I cannot access iHeart radio since I installed Cookie. Every time I go to the website I get an error message that says http://www.iheart.com Specified PLAYER cannot function in this environment.
I click OK on the message. The web page loads. It will not let me play any of the radio stations.
