    Hi!

    I've made an article regarding getting Gmail and YouTube working again on MorphOS. Slowly OWB 1.24 and my Google accounts stopped to work. Seems like Google changed their cookies policy or something.

    Well!.. OWB 1.25 for AROS or AmigaOS 4 can solve this. You need to start OWB to get the cookies.db file in your Conf drawer though.

    Just copy cookies.db file to where you have your OWB for MorphOS. This also works with OWB 1.23 etc!

    Yes, you are right. Most recent OS4 version (May 2016) is designated as v1.23r4. The reason some like to call it "v1.25" is probably this:

    "backported deadwood's fixes from 1.25:
    - fixed major memory leak where Frames were not released together with their JS data - memory no longer continuously consumed while browsing
    - fixed a number of small memory leaks
    - fix for cookies, which make login to youtube, blogger and some others works again.

    We rather need a cookie.db tool or a howto create cookie.db for OWB.
    Because I for example have no x86 or x64 machine to create such a file.

    Damn MorphDelf don't steal others solutions and spread it as your solution.. But this needs a MOS tool or fix, most wanted .. Hopefully it leaves for a solution soon :)

    Well, OS4 folks have a working solution. AROS folks have a working solution. MorphOS developers have a working solution. It's just us, users that have to wait. Or maybe there's a chance for a standalone OWB version, MOS-team?

    If you have a backup of the cookies.db from that period when your google account worked, then just overwrite with that the existing one.
