    Out of interest, why after the Safari reset etc... and supposedly deleting and clearing history on the very odd occasion, why does it still show me logged in to Gmail accounts on Google. All other sites that may have had password saved, are all lost, but Gmail doesn't go with any delete, reset, empty Safaris. Not very secure is it if you're on a shared computer? Yes you can log out, but I'd not logged out of the other ones it's all deleted

    tell a lie.... my Twitter is still connected and has not refreshed to ask me for a password or user name either?

    It does not clear passwords and usernames from sites. I thought clear history, Reset Safari and Empty cache, website data etc.. was a clean delete?

    Still connected to Gmail and Twitter, and Yahoo Mail also.

    Why?

    Please tell me what the point of this is?

    Look in the Keychain app and see if those logins are saved there.

    Hmmm... I don't get it either. I believe that last checkmark would delete the cookies, but maybe look in the preferences in that privacy tab to make sure the cookies are really gone?

    There was about 6 remaining cookies from delete but none relevant to what's stayed logged in. Very strange. Library/Safari responsible you think? The pst or plst? file?

    I don't think so. The Safari plist is just Safari preferences. I'm stumped.
