    Hello all, I can't seem to turn off cookies within safari. I deleted all the saved cookies, "reset" Safari, and set allow cookies to "never" in the preferences. Restarted Safari and within minutes of browsing the cookies start coming back...
    I even went into the cookies.plist and manually deleted them and locked the file as read only, still the cookies return...

    Not sure what I am missing, any suggestions? All of my software is up to date by the way. This may be the final push that moves me over to Opera or Firefox, not a fan of Chrome...

    Safari 5.05 OSX Ver. 10.6.8
    All software is up to date. I noticed gmail respects it and makes me turn the cookies on in order to use it. But youtube and other sites still freely save cookies no matter what I do.
