log into my websites
From the Safari Menu Bar click Safari/Preferences then select the Autofill tab.
Click the Edit button next to: Other forms
Delete the websites you have problems accessing then click Done.
If that doesn't help, open Keychain Access (Applications/Utilites)
Select Passwords on the left. Delete the website keychains on the right you have the problems with.
Quit Keychain Access. Navigate to one of the sites in Safari, login with your username and password. You will be prompted to save that data. Click Always Allow. Do that with ther other sites.
If that doesn't work, it may be a corrupted preference file. Go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop. Relaunch Safari. If you can login to a site without a problem then move that .plist file to the Trash.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 5:43 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)Havent tried the proposed fixes yet, but this same thing is happening on my brand-new iPad. This is also being reported on my website by dozens of Mac OS 10.6.3 users, so going through this elaborate fix process (if it works) is not going to be a good option.MacBook Pro 17", Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 5:51 PM (in response to Whatsup97)same problem, after half an hour or so it logs me out of pretty much everything. very frustrating.
Will look at your fixes later and see how they go

Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 8:27 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)This has been happening to me ever since I did the last Safari update so clearly this isn't an isolated incident (based on the other responses). I tried doing exactly as instructed and it only temporarily fixed the issue. A few hours later, my accounts are back to logging off regularly.
Obviously this is beyond coincidence and certainly beyond individual user problems. Hope this gets fixed soon because I can't tolerate having to log in to all my various accounts every 15 minutes.Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2010 11:09 PM (in response to Carolyn Samit)Just to be clear, the problem is not logging into the site, it's Safari regularly requiring users to login again even though s/he just did few minutes ago. It only started with 4.0.5 updaate, where as with 4.0.4 one can pretty much stay logged in the entire day.
It's happening for all sites as far as I can tell. It's as if Safari is invalidating the cookies before the expiration set by the web site.Mac OS X (10.6.3), Safari 4.0.5
Currently Being ModeratedApr 6, 2010 2:22 PM (in response to Whatsup97)I am having a very similar problem. I can generally stay logged in longer than 10 minutes -- the length of time varies -- but since the upgrade to Safari 4.0.5, I've been getting logged out of websites unexpectedly. Previously, I could stay logged in all day or even for days. But, not since the upgrade. I've tried most of the tips offered here, but to no avail. This has been happening across a wide variety of websites.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Safari 4.05
Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2010 10:44 AM (in response to Whatsup97)I am starting to have this problem. I sign into facebook, AOL mail, and a couple other sites at the same time. Then randomly I get knocked out and have to sign back in. Anyone have a clue what is causing this?IMAC, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 12, 2010 9:46 AM (in response to Whatsup97)I have no clue but I wish there was a fix. I have a couple of secured pages that I need to be logged into all day at work. Ever since the Safari "upgrade" I've had to re-login multiple times a day. Maybe not honoring the cookie expiration date?iMac/Mac mini/MacBook/MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2010 12:20 PM (in response to ryer)Spoke too soon - while I did all the "fixes" and did not get logged off within a few sec., I did eventually get logged off within the hour - even tho' the log0off on the site is for set for several weeks.
IS anyone from Apple listening?macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2010 12:27 PM (in response to ryer)HI,
This forum is supported using JIVE software that on occasion has glitches. The Apple moderators here are aware of this issue. Be patient....
I have to re-login constantly. Hopefully they will have this fixed soon. This is the busiest Apple forum on the net, therefore more vulnerable to temporary malfunctions.
