    what is going wrong between safari & my ebay page.

    only started happening recently. logging into my ebay page, and it asks my user name and pass word, and then goes into a loop of asking my username & password.

    I have reset safari several time, emptied the cache and cookies, etc...

    and it still keeps on going into this loop.

    Ebay blames safari as the problem.

    cant apple and ebay resolve their issues..???

    angry mac user.

    You mean the browser with the same rendering engine?

    While using a different browser may "fix" the problem, if the OP were to clear their browser cache and cookies, the issue would likely clear up.

    Doing this through Safari's method is not necessarily effective. Searching eBay login and Safari will point to a number of posts that cover this issue as well as a more direct approach.

    I should have made this more clear, my mistake for not doing that.

    Google Chrome is fine for me browsing eBay, but when I come to list an item for sale, it don't play ball, and I have to use Safari, most odd:confused:

    That is a development issue. With eBay changing so much up lately, it is not a surprise that features are breaking across browsers.

    The only browser you can really blame for issues like this is IE8 and under (I can't comment on 9 yet), as it often implemented features in a different manner than other browsers such as certain DOM object implementations. It takes very little effort to ensure compatibility for Firefox, Chrome and Safari these days.

    Mickyfin,

    Try Garage Sale, it is pretty nice, but you need a working internet connection while using it.
