So- the result is that Cookie was not at fault. The Google dashboard no longer worked due to interference of the Duck Duck Go extension in Safari. Disabling that extension solved the problem.

RE: Help me defend Cookie on Apple Support Community
Help me defend Cookie on Apple Support Community
I just had a Level 10 user, meaning they're supposed to be an expert, tell me flat out that third party cookie management is not necessary on a Mac. I feel they couldn't be more wrong, but other than point out that cookie is "automated privacy" as you description says, I didn't do a good job of defending Cookie.
The question came up because I'm noticing that the upper right corner of the Google window started acting erratically some time in the last 3 weeks- the user icon disappears so that I can't log out and the little matrix of squares representing the Google apps comes and goes. The Level 10 person is blaming Cookie for this problem with Google.
Can anyone help me defend Cookie? I'm still on macOS El Capitan and Safari 10.0.1 :dodgy:
Here is what Level 10 said:
Third party cookie management apps are not necessary on a Mac and may be causing a conflict with Google. Uninstall that app
Then go to your Safari menu bar, click
Safari > Preferencesthen select the Privacy tab then click either Remove All Website Data or Manage Website Data. Wait for cookies to populate then click
Quit then relaunch Safari to try Gmail.
RE: Newbie question- my favorites seem ineffective
Thanks for your response; I followed your instructions and will see if the bank recognizes me next time. I thought having the checkmark under the heart for the entire bank would have done that already, but I see there is nothing on my whitelist until now.
Newbie question- my favorites seem ineffective
searched for "favorites", but didn't find a relevant subject, so here goes.
I just want my bank to stop forcing me to enter a text code because they don't recognize my computer. I know this is because Cookie is deleting their info. I have gone to Cookie 4.5.8/Safari/ and checked the favorites (heart) box next to chase, and this is still happening. Have also checked the heart in the flash cookies window. No other chase instances show up. Why is Chase not recognizing me every time I log in? I have the same problem with other banks.
