TIP: Sometimes, if a cookie has become corrupted, removing cookie may cause Safari to crash. If this happens, open Safari again and follow the first two steps. In the Privacy tab, instead of clicking on Remove all Website Data, click on Details which is located just underneath and to the right. This will open a new window where you can remove cookies one by one, or there is also another Remove All%% button.
