    i suspect this will be more of a rant than anything else, but I have a need to be signed in to Amazon under two different accounts, although not necessarily simultaneously. One is my actual account, and the other is an author alias solely used for accessing the Kindle publishing forums.

    Problem is that if I open a new tab in Safari and log in with a separate account, it resets the login in the other tab. If I go in to private mode I can log in using the other account without affecting the non-private session, but the login credentials aren't saved so I have to re-log in every other time I access the page, which is annoying.

    Work arounds?

    Yep, hardly unique to SAFARI. Your log in cookies are necessarily used for all the windows/tabs in a given browser. PD's suggestion is probably the best one.

    Or just hit the log out button top right and then log in as the other persona.

    I would just suggest using another browser to simplify things.
