Being Randomly Logged Out of Websites When Using Safari

Ever since the latest Mac OS X 10.5.6 update which I installed simultaneously to the Safari 2.3.1 update, I’ve experienced an issue where cookies seem to get clobbered despite selecting the “keep me logged in” option, and I’ll find that I’ve been suddenly logged out of the site I was on. This happens on many sites (e.g. Gmail, Facebook, Sporting News, etc.), and I’ll usually see an error like “You must login to use this website.”

This Google Groups thread discusses the issue in the context of Fluid, which uses WebKit to create site specific browsers for your favorite web apps.

The problem isn’t limited to Fluid, but rather to all apps that use WebKit, like Safari, NetNewsWire, and more.

Are you experiencing this issue as well?
