    After upgrading to lion - websites are being automatically logged out after being idle for a few minutes???

    Is this a new feature?? Can I set the time anywhere??

    I'm not on a shared computer and I like to leave some sites logged in with Remember me cookies etc so I don't have to renter passwords etc and since lion both Safari and firefox are doing it aarrghhhh

    Can anyone help me please??

    Have you clicked "Remember Me". Most sites that require a login have that "feature"

    Yes - that's what I mean - I've been using this feature on some sites for years with no problems - and without changing anything other than lion upgrade - they are logging out without my say so - one even did it before my eyes yesterday - I was working on one screen and safari was open on the other and it caught my eye as the login screen came up :eek:

    1. Make sure that the Lion upgrade didn't change any of your Safari settings, especially for cookies and stuff.

    2. Try a different browser (i.e. FireFox or Chrome) and see if the issue still occurs (to determine whether it's a browser issue or OS issue)

    Odd. Haven't experienced that under Lion. I second what redsteven suggested.
