When someone logs off of Facebook, their name still appears in my buddy list. It's grayed out, but still there. I usually have to go to File > (My Facebook Account) > "Refresh Buddy List" for their name to disappear.
My next previous computer was a powerbook circa 2003, and I got it up to 10.4..and I could easily manage cookies, see what they were and who from- AND when Isaid block them it WORKED.What the **** is going on with this bit where they offer a block 3rd arty cookies and from advertisers - chcek box, but it STOPS NOTHING?
Quick question about Faces in iPhoto '11: I have some pictures of a specific person, say Vicky, and her face is linked with an Address Book entry. Now, when I find a new picture of Vicky, and type "V", the usual name list comes up but now there are two Vickys: the address book one, and the Facebook one (and they are really the same person). How do I make iPhoto "link" the address book contact with the facebook contact?
I've been using it briefly and it seems to be relatively reliable however tonight I uploaded a photo from my iphoto to another facebook account for someone and now their account is in my iphoto alongside mine. Any idea how to delete their facebook account integration but keep mine intact. I love using iPhoto with my facebook but I don't really want someone elses up there. This is probably a simple fix, I however can't seem to find the solution.
The first time I published photos to facebook was to upload phtots to my partner's facebook account - now I can't work out how to break the connection to my partner's facebook and estblish a connection with mine!!
My daughter's iMac runs OS X 10.6.8. When she selects a cookie in Preferences>Pivacy and clicks Remove, it disappears and then reappears in about a second. I have routinely deleted selected cookies on my computer for years and never had this problem
I try do delete cookies in Safari 5.1.7 with settings to "Block from 3rd parties and avertizers". Most cookies can be deleted, but there is one named 194] that I delete and 2 seconds later it reappears in the cookies list. I tried to search the mac for 194] but nothing comes up.
I had a trial for MobileMe for a while, and recently I stopped the trial as it was coming to its end. Once it was cancelled, I started to notice that cookies weren't saving anymore within Safari, and I've tried everything to re-enable them. It's crap because every-time I go to a site (such as these forums) I've gotta enter my login info. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I think it's still looking for the cloud bookmarks, and yes, I have gone into the system prefs and removed my mobileme info, and I've also made sure that in the Safari prefs that the option "sync bookmarks with mobileme" is also unchecked, yet my cookies aren't saving or anything. Not sure if it's related to mobile me though.
More than 100 cookies instantly reappear. I tried emptying cache. I tried deleting individual cookies. I changed the setting to always block instead of just third party. I changed plugin settings and auto fill settings. I don't know what else to try. Still, the cookies persist.
I have set my Safari Preferences originally to block cookies from advertisers and third parties, but it ignores that setting. Finally, I set it to block all cookies. It also ignores that setting. Is there any way to have Safari recognize it's own preference settings? By the way, I had to use Firefox to sign on here at the Apple Website today. Safari no longers seems to work with the Apple discussion site. Very odd.
stop selected cookies from being set in Safari? For instance, I would like to permanently block cookies from, say, Facebook and Google Analytics. I have tried clicking the radio button in Preferences>Privacy that supposedly blocks cookies from Third Parties and Advertisers, and like many other users I have found that it does nothing. I get just as many cookies from third parties and advertisers whether the button is clicked or not. As far as I can tell it’s a placebo.
Apple’s Safari help on this issue is suspiciously carefully worded. It says that if you click the radio button, “this MIGHT HELP prevent certain advertisers from storing cookies on your computer.” What?!! What’s with the “might” and “help”? Talk about weasel words! Does it work or doesn’t it? Is it so difficult for software to recognize and delete a cookie? I find it pretty hard to believe that the problem is technical and not, um, deliberate. Apple is, after all, in the information business just like all the other major players.
Anyway, the software that people usually recommend for zapping cookies is Safari Cookies, but that deletes them only when you quit Safari – in other words, after said cookies have reported back to their source. So what’s the point? By then they have done exactly what you are trying to stop them from doing. I want the cookies deleted when they are set – BEFORE my privacy is compromised.
there's an unknown computer showing up on my shared list.I my get my internet through a wireless router, a BT homehub, and you need a password to get onto the internet.. there are 3 computers in my house connected to that router and they dont even show up under my "shared" list! does this sound like my network is being hacked... and if so how do i protect it (and sorry to say im probably the least technical person when it comes to computers to the simplest explanation would be the best )
When I double click on my HD and click Users the only user listed is "shared". My Home User is not there. All my data is accessible but I am concerned that it may get hidden. When I back up to my external HD it transfers all of my data but again I cant see me as a user. Could be coincidental but my logic board was replaced last week and i think it happened then.
An application I am trying to use needs to have cookies enabled. My Safari Preferences for Security do not show cookies. In fact it only shows selections for Fraudulent sites and Web content. I am the admin. What do I need to do to see these settings?
I have a number of persistent Cookies that show as Cache. Some Cookies are classed as cookie and others as Cache or Locally stored. How can I remove these Cookies that are classed as 'cache'. Deleting through Safari>Preferences>Private>Delete doesn't work. Deleting Safari folders in the >User>Home folder also has no effect.
Info: MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), iPad & iBook OS 10.6.8
For some time now, Safari has not been saving my cookies. Or to put it in different words, every time I access my email, or gmail or Facebook or twitter I have to login again. It is getting quite frustrating now.
