Q: Cannot remove cookies since Sierra update?
Aug 24, 2017I have been unable to remove cookies since updating to Sierra, even after the latest 10.12.2 update. My method beforehand was to Allow Cookies only from websites I visit, then I would manually erase my history and then cookies (command ,) in the Privacy -->Manage Website Data. This no longer works, and the cookies listed in the Manager will not erase after I try removing them manually. I have also erased my cache, and I still cannot remove the offending cookies.

Q: Alternative to Apple's all or none cookie approach?
Oct 10, 2017It seems ludicrous to me that Apple chose in the latest Safari that disabling cookies means that you must delete all cookies!!! When visiting a new site, it seemed always a good idea to temporarily disable cookies until you were sure about a site or you visit a site where you simply do not want a fistful of cookies thrown at you. Now, if you do that, it totally wipes out your entire cookie history, even those from benevolent sites, like logging in here which triggers a two-levelhttps://discussions.apple.com/thread/8107816?language=en
