    I updated safari last night and it deleted all my stored web passwords out of my keychain. Has anyone experienced this problem?

    Afraid not - mine are still there. Are they gone when you look in Preferences or your Keychain? Or are they just not coming up when you type them in?

    Mines been fine too. To be honest I've never really had any problems with Safari, the odd close down, thats it. Nothing so far after the update. But it is at this point when I have said things are fine when things start to go wrong!!! :confused: hehe! :rolleyes:

    they're gone from the preferences and they dont come up. i cant imagine that they got erased from the harddrive though... does anyone have any idea how i might be able to recover them?

    It's tricky if they've been erased since if you're been using your Mac since they may already have been overwritten.

    Are they gone from the Keychain Access application too? Go to Passwords, Internet and you can view them.

    If you have a recent backup, you could import your internet passwords back into Keychain Access and they should reappear in Safari too.
