Editing comment logs me out

If I edit a comment on an image I get logged out. The page I am editing loads properly, but the next page load I'm no longer logged in. I have been getting randomly logged out for months but today I finally figured out an apparent cause.

I'm using Safari 12.1 but this happened with earlier versions.

We have had strange things happen
when we go to edit a comment while in the meantime someone responds to our comment, so when we finish our edit the comment is no longer editable. We always get confused on what is happening, but then it sinks in. But we don't remember getting logged out by the process. Very confusing. Look forward to the answer you get
