Safari removing cookies every day

Recommended Posts

Hey Mac geeks,


I'm a recent convert, now using Safari (instead of Firefox) and I'm experiencing a kinda annoying thing:


Safari doesn't seem to store cookies longer than 24 hours even though the cookies have much longer lifetimes set. I've been going through the configuration options but to no avail.


Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A couple of things that may be happening: make sure you arn't accidentally hitting the combination Command(Apple)+Option(Alt)+E because it empties the cache. Another issue (more likely) is that you may have Private Browsing checked in the main Safari drop down menu; this will not save cookies etc. as if you were in a public space when surfing or using a public Mac (ie. Work, WiFi café etc.).
