Default Help deleting browser history

I have tried deleting my browser/internet history, but whenever I go onto Craigslist, it still shows what I have been browsing.

What needs to be done to delete all history, including craigslist?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!
You can go to Settings / Applications / Manage applications and find you browser, then delete cache, if this doesn't help, delete also data (carefully, I think this also deleted your bookmarks).

Another program you can try from the Market is History Eraser. Has options for more than just Browser. Nice app even if it doesn't solve your current issue.

Default Frustrated new Android user

I am accustomed to Linux, where I normally use Firefox, but also have Opera installed. I have set my home page in each to a blank page.

I have a new (to me) MyTouch 3G with Froyo 2.2.1. After buying it used on Craigslist, I did a factory reset, which means it has the default Android browser. There was also a Google search tool on the home page, which I never used until just now. I installed Opera Mini and Dolphin.

With Opera I was able to set a blank home page, and I added some bookmarks to the opening page. I can't figure out how to do that with Dolphin or the default browser.

Today I decided to try the Google search thing on the main page. I entered "rae.es/ <palabra>" to look up a word. Instead of taking me to the home page rae.es/ it did a google search. Fine, I shouldn't have done it that way. I should have opened a browser and typed it in the URL bar.

So I closed the Google search page, and launched Opera Mini. But now Opera Mini comes up with the same Google search page. I can't get it to come up with the blank home page any more. I have tried deleting the cache, but it still opens the Google search results.

Obviously I do not understand how browsers and caches and bookmarks work on Android. I want each browser only to open to its home page. Always. How can I get the behavior I want?
