If you have a ton of cookies, it may take a while for all of them to be displayed; and, they may not be brought into display in normal order. It should settle down after all are being displayed and be in normal alphanumeric descending order.
In addition, any key press will bounce the list to show the first one which starts with that character. Plus, if you have a MagicMouse the list will scroll in response to the scroll finger-gesture on the mousetop.
As long as the list of cookies is displayed (the list you get when you click the "details..." button), the icons in thre toolbar of Privacy will be greyed out. You must close the details (cookies list) window (click the "Done" button) before those will become active again.
Thanks for your reply.
I understand what youre saying but something is defintiely different than it was a couple of days ago, Its not letting me clearly highlight something and delete it like I always can. Im not sure what you consider a 'large number' - as it appears any website you visit or click by accident puts a cookie on it.
When Im typing things in the search bar, theyre not clearly showing up and the names of websites keep appearing and disappearing - its just very strange and never happened before. Its not letting me delete what I want to delete.
