I tried everything possible to figure this out, but cant. Safari keeps logging me out of Facebook, Gmail and twitter. Facebook will even log out in as little as 2min after I just signed in! And Ideas on how to fix this???? I just downloaded OS X Lion yesterday, and it started after that!! PLEASE HELP!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Been monitoring my facebook and gmail and does not happen with me. Realize that does not solve your problem but just thought to let you know it is certainly not something happening to all Lion users.


    Have you tried a restart?

    I am experiencing the SAME problems. Safari is not saving ANY passwords for more than a 24 hr period. I have to login from scratch every day its its incredibly annoying. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

    I have a simalar issue. I'm good with gmail and facebook after I selected "remember me" on login. I expected that after the OS change but I use Outlook Web App for work email and there is an initial portal to get past with a key code then once you are in if you leave your browser open it will keep you in the portal. Any who not after the upgrade. It logs me out everytime I click the tab, when it refreshes the page. Which I think is stupid. I'm overseas with slow satellite net right now and refresh is killin me.

    Same here:


    Lion/Safari was fine for a week or so, but now all my web logins get lost simultaneously after a time--lately, about a day. All will be fine and the sites set to "Remember me" work as always... unitil suddenly they don't, and I have to log in again. It's unpredictable, but it's ALL sites at once when it happens.


    Keychain helps enter the login info (so the keychain is OK) but it's still an anniying extra step to have to keep logging in again.


    I'd say it's a Safari-wide cookie bug. I do still see cookies listed for those "Remember me" sites, but something is amiss anyway.

    Hello Apple!!!  Same issue here.  Online project management system I use now makes me log in every time I go to it.  Doesnt happen on any other computer I own, only this newly upgraded OSX Lion.  Its really annoying having to log in several times a day.  Why arent you answering the call for help?  I havent complained about the 50 + other annoyances I find with the system, only this one!
