    For the past several months iTunes (specifically "For You", "Radio" and other apps within iTunes. 12.3.1.23) do not work if I have Always Block cookies selected in Safari (9.0.1). I can easily demonstrate this by allowing cookies while music is playing. Then if I go into Safari, and change it to Always Block, the music stops or the song playing will finish then the problem appears. In addition, I get an error when trying to access For You and my stations disappear within Radio. My Music is unaffected.

    Any ideas?

    Also, if I clear all cookies while I'm listening to music, the current song will continue playing. But once it's done, the error appears. I have to shut down iTunes, reopen it and log back in.

    Just received an answer from Tech Support. Apparently, this is how it works.

    I thought I would revisit this post to see if anyone else has a work around. Here is what continues to occur:

    (1) Listening to music on iTunes "For You"
    (2) Clear Historyin Safari (10.0.2), all history
    (3) Once the song finishes, iTunes stops playing music
    (4) I get logged out of iTunes and have to log back in
