    On the Mac you can do this with Cookie 5. It's pretty complete in its functions and will allow you to clear cookies for specific sites on exit, by time etc.
    Doesn't work on the phone.
    One snag: from memory it costs about $15
    Sorry if I posted a blank message. I always seem to hit the wrong button on this site.

    Wonderful, just remember that you need to run manually your extension via Extension Builder every time you quit and reopen Safari. I think it might be possible to create a script to do this automatically every time you launch Safari again.

    Ask developers to update their extensions.

    Same same. Those favicon are hideous. I already sent a feedback to apple.

    I too encountered this issue. I forced quit Safari and ever relaunched finder.
    I finally tried the default Windows solution and it worked.

    I restarted my MBP and had no problems updating Safari.

    You need to enable Adblock Icon and go to Settings to enable the filter list. It works fine here.

    Is there any alternative for Sessions Safari Extension?
    I didn't realise Safari 12 does not support this extension...

    re adblock plus Apple says it "can read sensitive information from webpages, including passwords, phone numbers, and credit cards on: all webpages."

    I think I won't use it anymore - you may also want to reconsider using it.

    Great suggestion. Just did the same. Feedback sent to Apple.

    Might want to put down the coffee and re-read what I was responding to. Thank you for confirming that Apple disabled all protections against canvas fingerprinting. This isn't about being scared. No need to condescend.

    What I told you is that there are alternatives to JSBlocker that effectively counter the canvas fingerprinting.

    I haven't confirmed anything what you said.

    Any way to have top sites and favorites be on one page when I open a new tab like it was before?

    So it took away my ad blocker.
    What is the recommended way to get a good one back that's allowed by apple? And one that doesn't slow things down by much.

    This is so annoying, ublock origin and disconnect.me plugins gone. Until they get App Store versions (and I will try contacting the devs), I won’t use safari anymore and will be on Firefox instead.

    Is Safari 12 faster than 11.1.2 ?

    Which Developer Preview is this being shipped as v12?

    my favourite ad blocker is not working anymore, thank you very much

    browsing now really hurts my eyes ...

    might be forced to switch to another browser if this does not change

    Updated to Safari 12 yesterday. Immediately had trouble getting into work database that uses Java. It displays "Un-supported plugin" and stops. Likely due to Apple removing NPAPI support from Safari 12. Eventually had to reinstall OS to get back to Safari 11.1.2. Got the message for our IT today that Safari 12 is incompatible with Banner 8. No fix yet.

    I ran it through the battery on browserbench.com and got 10-15% better scores than Safari 11.

    Safari 12's claimed fingerprinting protection is fundamentally broken. They claimed to be blocking font profiling, but it is broken on the go-to site for checking such things: https://browserleaks.com/fonts

    So now plug-ins are gone. How am I supposed to use my Foscam C1 camera?

    F*** Apple.

    Forum alerts on here and other forums are now not working, there's just a blank space where there used to be a red banner with a number inside.

    I am in the same boat. I do not see a lot of info on this page regarding this "safari extensions" problem. So, Im guessing its either a rare problem or people are just not updating their system. Anyone find a way to "fix" this yet? Frustrating

    I can't stand these FLASHING ADS! At least the stagnant ones are tolerable but these flashing ones makes me not even want to visit sites that have them like MacRumors for instance.
    I WANT A SAFE AD BLOCKER BACK NOW!!!

    Don't you love how Apple just breaks everything with a new Safari? Now, your plug-ins and extensions are all broken. Whose problem is that? The plug-in and extension developers, apparently.

    I can't wait until the Apple Car comes out. A new software version will mean that your child seats won't work any more and need an update, and your ski rack won't work either. You'll also need a dongle to put air in your tires.
