    Running Safari 5.1 on Lion, I have an issue where when I switch to Safari, the extensions lose all their settings and the browser is set to not accept cookies. Essentially, it seems Safari loses some settings (and as a result the 1Password extension cannot read its database and AdBlock is inactive).

    Simply quitting and reloading Safari fixes this. The odd thing, however, is that this seems to happen when I've left Safari running for a while with no windows open and then come back to it, as opposed to if I simply quit it and reload it later.

    I haven't seen anyone else report this here or on other forums. Any suggestions? (I've tried "resetting" Safari.)

    I would try and delete all the support files and the profile.
