I'm not sure how to be more specific, but, I used to delete cookies on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro by going into Safari>Preferences>Security and then finding something that said >show cookies> delete cookies. Now I can't find anything under Security that gives me that option. it now says
Fraudulent Sites and Web Content. What has happened? is this something I could have done?

Thanks so much for any info you can share.

I generally use Firefox instead of Safari, but I think you have two options to delete cookies. The first is from the Clear History menu and the second is from Tools (though I may be remembering incorrectly).

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Look under the Privacy tab, right next to the Security one.
