    In the URL bar in the browser it shows my bookmarks when you touch it, **NOT THE BROWSER HISTORY** as I have cleared it.

    lets just say I might have some bookmarks that I would not want others to see

    anyone know how to disable this with out deleting all my bookmarks?

    Myself or someone else will likely try this soon to see if we can confirm or give a workaround.

    Please be patient - can't expect the full community to be out in force on a nice Sunday afternoon. ;) :)

    ive yet to see any settings to turn this off. you may want to use another browser. firefox has "incognito" mode and skyfire is also a great browser to use.

    Lol... sorry, but its apples and oranges bringing the beloved but retired Hero into it.

    Anyways, its not bookmarks but recently visited sites. I think if you go to settings while in the browser and clear history it will clear that as well.

    :)

    Enjoy!

    bookmarks still show as well...

    if you delete bookmarks they go away but the OP does not want to do that...
