My question is very similar to this question:

Safari 7.0.4 doesn't remember my login status. "Remember me" not working (OS X 10.9.3)

Except it differs in 3 key ways:

  1. The solution did not work for me This occurs ONLY on Facebook.com; reddit, twitter, netflix, etc.'s "remember me" function works fine.
  2. The erasure of the cookies does not occur during restart of the browser. In fact, I can restart safari and still be logged in.
  3. The erasure happens when I put the computer to sleep and wake it up again.

I have confirmed that the cookies are being reset. The cookie list is entirely different on wake, and I am booted out of Facebook.

The curious thing is that it only occurs for Facebook. This is really annoying though, and my next resort will be a full reinstall.

Extra info:

Newest model Retina MacBook Pro (August 2014) running OS X 10.9.4 Safari 7.0.6


It seems to have been resolved for now, with a "Repair Disk Permissions" from Disk Utility, although I suspect it will occur again.


This is a long time after I asked the question, however I did eventually figure it out. It turns out that I had connected my Skype to my Facebook account, and that was somehow triggering a logout every time I opened Skype (that's why it seemed so random). So solution for anybody who's having this problem: just disconnect Skype and Facebook. Never had this issue again.


add site to cookies/cache approved list in browser settings

  • Could you expand on exactly how to achieve this?
