    I seem to be automatically logged out fairly often these days... was the timer/cookie/whatever adjusted downwards recently?

    I ask as I had a post I had worked on for maybe 20-30 minutes, and when I hit "submit new thread" I was told I was not logged in. I then tried the back button so I could copy what I had written, but no luck, post is gone.

    Should I have just logged in, would that have preserved what I wrote?

    Not sure about any changes, but that's annoying and a major bummer, and has happened to me too. Even when logged in, I always open new windows if needing to review other stuff, cause when using the back-button, everything seems to be gone. I'm still running SL, and for anything of any length, once in a while I copy what I've got onto my desktop, just in case.

    I don't know if you're comfotable with this option, but if you check "Remember Me'" (or whatever the box says under the Log In spaces), you are never logged out automatically.

    I have the box checked and have never encountered the problem.

    Again...I don't know if you might have some reason to not check the box.:D

    Shrink, that may do the trick, it was unchecked. I don't remember un-checking it at any point though.

    I do clear all cookies when quitting Safari, but I've been doing that for years now.

    Weird.

    At least it is not as bad as one site I visit where I am sometimes logged out after a few hours even after telling it to remember me. I don't go there much because of that.
