Safari 9.0.3 on OS X El Capitan 10.11.3


  1. I launch Safari > Login to Gmail,ebay or any other site > Login Successful
  2. Open New Tab and if i go to gmail or ebay or the site that i had open in the first tab, it wants me to login again, so login session seems limited to just the original tab
  3. I close Safari launch same website again and it wants me to login again

Above issue is not happening in FireFox or Chrome, in those browser, my gmail session stays persistent b/w browser and even OS restarts

  • Two things I can think of: 1) Are you using Private Browsing? Doubtful since this should go away when you close the window. 2) Are your cookie settings set correctly? PreferencesPrivacyAllow from websites I visit. – user11633 Mar 8 '16 at 17:27
