Safari is becoming increasingly problematic at logging out of sites that have cookies. To name just two, Twitter and Google Reader. When I click either web site's sign out button, the next page that appears is me still logged in. No matter how many times I click log out, it won't log me out.
Tried the exact same thing in Google Chrome, and no problems -- I'm logged out properly.
Any fixes to Safari becoming so inconsistent at this? I know I can dump all my cookies, but I'd prefer not to do that because of lots of useful cookies that exist. (And I don't want to have to manually delete Twitter or GR cookies every time I need to log out.)
If you are running v10.6.3 as your profile suggests, update your system soft\ware. Click the Apple menu (top left in your screen) then click: Software Update ...
If you have any Safari third party add ons installed, that could be what's causing the glitch with cookies.
And check Safari / Preferences - Extensions. If you have any installed, turn that off, quit then relaunch Safari.
Try troubleshooting the Safari .plist file.
Quit Safari. Open a Finder window. Select your Home Folder in the Sidebar on the left. It has a small house icon. Then open the Library folder then the Preferences folder. Move the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Preferences folder to the Desktop. Launch Safari. If that didn't make a difference, move the .plist file back to the Preferences folder.
Try deleting a keychain for one of the sites like Facebook. Quit Safari. Open Keychain Access /Applications/Utilities. Select Passwords on the left. Delete the Facebook keychain. Relaunch Safari. Login to FB. You should be prompted to save your login data to a new keychain, click Yes when prompted. See if you can logout.
