Safari :: Unable To Set Cookie Preferences In 5.1.5 By Going To Safari/preferences/privacy?

Apr 28, 2012

A few days ago my email was hacked into which sent a spam email to all my contacts.  I changed my password to that account, warned everyone in my contacts, and haven't had a problem with email since. However, I tried to do the 'delete all cookies' again and when I go to safari/preferences/privacy...there is nothing on that screen under that tab.  Not even a question mark. I changed my history items to be removed every day from every week but don't think that would be the issue.

Safari :: Where Is The Cookie File

Feb 5, 2012

When I delete "Cookies.plist" from User/Library/Cookies and replace it with a copy I made earlier, there are still cookies from recent websites I have visited (even if I quit Safari, empty trash and reboot).  I would like to keep a few important cookes (bank brokerage acct, etc) in 'clean' cookie files that I use to replace the ones that get all junked up as I surf around the web.  This would be much easier than going through the cookies one at a time and deleting the vast majority of them I don't want.  I can't just use the 'delete all' option for the reason stated above. Drives me nuts that everybody wants to track where I've been. 

(don't know why the tag below says I'm running 10.6.5 - I am actually running 10.6.8)

Safari :: Deleted All Cookies Now Cookie File Will Not Open?

Mar 5, 2012

Been having a terrible time since I decided to delete all my cookies. When I tried to log back into all my online accounts I found that despite choosing "remember me" or other similar choice, if I logged out of my computer or even if I quit Safari (or Safari quit on me which it does a lot these days) I had to log back in to the online account, as if the identity cookie did not take. Tonight I stumbled onto my Console Log which I found has line after line of the following: 2012-03-05 22:28:34.275 Safari[12743] Could not open cookie file "/Users/ryan/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist" for reading. I clicked on the cookie plist, had to input my log in password and the document that came up showed it had recorded nothing since 2/28 which was the day I deleted the cookies. Why would the cookie file suddenly not open?

Software :: Multiple Instances Of Safari With Independent Cookie Databases?

Dec 4, 2008

Is there any way to bring up multiple instances of Safari, each one with a completely independent cookie database? I have several Gmail accounts, and I want to simultaneously log in to all of them in different browser windows. However, since Safari manages a central cookie database, I can't log into one of these Gmail accounts without signing out from another. With separate Safari instances that maintain separate cookie databases, I could simultaneously keep multiple Gmail windows open.

Safari Not Clearing Cache Consistently

Mar 3, 2012

Safari 5.0.5. MacOS 10.6.8..I am developping complex HTML+JavaScript. I notice that after a while (~30 mn) Safari does not clear its cache and re-uses old JS scripts. I have caches disabled in the development menu. Clearing cache or reinitialize Safari from the Safari menu is of no help.Only way is to delete the cache.db file in Libray/cache/, exit Safari, empty trash, then relaunch !

Applications :: Clearing The Safari History Folder?

Jun 16, 2010

I'm not sure if this was asked before but I couldn't find it in a search. I use Safari 4.0.3. When I clear the browser history, the folder library/caches/metadata/safari/history still has a log of the pages I visit. Is there anyway to clear this besides manually. Would clearing this folder change anything on my mac?

OS X :: Unable To Unlock Security Preferences?

Oct 20, 2009

I recently upgraded to Mac OS X 10.6 from OS X 10.5, but after that I have been unable to unlock the security preferences. Also whenever I try to install any software or update, instead of asking me the administrator password, the system does nothing, no dialog box appears. When I tried to unlock the security preferences in the System Preferences, after the clicking the 'lock' icon, the status bar shows "Authenticating....." for a couple of settings but nothing happens after that!

Safari :: Does Not Treat Cookies As A "Session" Cookie If The Expiry Has Not Been Set

Jun 15, 2012

The issue I've been having is that Safari 5.1.7 (on Windows 7) does not treat cookies as a "Session" cookie if the expiry has not been set. The date mysteriously gets set to Jan 01 2001 .... To reproduce the issue - these are the  setups I tried this on 


1) Created a mockup webpage that creates two cookies

COOKIE_WITH_EXPIRY (expiration set to July 01 2013)
COOKIE_WITHOUT_EXPIRY (no expiration set)

2) Hosted this on Apache 

Behaviour on Windows 7 + Safari 5.1.7
COOKIE_WITH_EXPIRY - expiration date  shown as July 01 2013
COOKIE_WITHOUT_EXPIRY - expiration date shown as Jan 01 2001 
Behaviour on Mac OS X 10.7.4 + Safari 5.1.7

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Network Security Preferences?

Apr 26, 2012

I have recently begun to use a fios router for my home network. When originally set up by fios they set the security to wep, and I set my network prefences as such. Since then I have changed the router to wpa security My network prefences still shows that wep encryption is being used. It still connects to the net but I can't figure out how to change it to reflect wpa security. Or since I am connecting to the net , is it necessary.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Setup And Security (Network Share Option)

Nov 5, 2009

I'm sort of new to the Time Capsule and still trying to wrap my head around all the different services. Currently I've setup my Time Capsule via ethernet and have setup mobile me on it. I've been trying to setup 'back to my mac' with no luck, the time capsule never shows up in the mobile me account. I'm able to connect to the Time Capsule via AFP protocol, but I couldn't find any documentation detailing the level of security of this connection. So far all that I've found is that my documents are being sent as clear text, not even the slightest hope of SSL. I would hope that enforce SSL and deny clear text connection would be an option but I couldn't find it in the control panel.

My last question is regarding the Time Capsule network share option. Obviously the share works well, as it can be access by any computer, but how would one setup the Time Machine to back it up too? As of right now it seems that the general belief of having your network share on the device that backs up your mac, means that the network share itself is being backed up. This is obviously not true, unless it's setup. I may have been caught in the middle of apple commercial propaganda and therefore believe that the peripheral can do more than it physically can.
