    From the homescreen click settings-search-clear quick search shortcuts (or something like that).

    I too have been a "dirty bird" :rolleyes:

    I'm having the same problem ... the browser still shows where I've been on Craigslist. I've deleted browsing history, cache, and it still shows my tracks.

    Has anyone figured out how to get the browser to erase CL history?!?

    I have this problem with CL on my computer. I will clear my history, but it will appear as if links had still been clicked. However, a second refresh clears the links.

    And what exactly are you guys "shopping" for that you don't want anybody to know about? ;)
     
  9. If you go into from the Home Screen to settings>>>Applications>>Manage Applications>>then fliter All>>you can scroll down to the browser and it should give you the option to clean cache and clear data..should fix the problem. Also if you use a diff. browser..just choose that one from the list and you should have options to do the same thing. Good Luck!!

    First I want to thank everybody for all the tips and hints I learned before I registered. Your assistance is greatly appreciated, this phone is amazing but still an infant when compared to the iphone.

    Now for the bookmark issue. I found the answer on another site, because I too was being an "adult" but naughty and a noob. Having adult bookmarks on a phone will get you those strange looks from techs and anyone that picks up your non-locked phone. My advice is... don't add adult bookmarks, but on with the solution.

    I have a moto droid firmware w/2.01, not rooted, carrier is verizon.

    Goto browser:

    1. select bookmarks (doesn't matter if you have the bookmarks listed or displayed as thumbnails)
    2. press and hold on the bookmark you want to edit, this opens secondary menu.
    3. at bottom of the menu select delete bookmark.

    The naughty bookmark is now gone.

    Be good! :)

    So much for naughty, how about nice?

    From my Droid desktop I press the Browser (the standard OEM) expecting it to load my chosen homepage, but it always opens the last page I had viewed.

    I've gone in and cleared this and reset that, but it always goes to the last page!!

    Dear god in heaven how can I set my browser to always start at my home page??

    The browser is still in memory (but not running, its sleeping). When you click the browser icon, the OS puts the existing browser app back to the top of the application stack. This is by design.

    To really go back to your home browser screen:

    Open your browser
    Menu > windows
    Hit the "x" to close a browser window. If you close the last one, a new one will be spawned. This will then read your default home page setting and start from that page.

    after you've cleared the browser history and the cache, go to "manage apps">browser>force stop. the next time you open your browser, there should be no "forward" and your history should be gone.
