is it true before "reset safari" deleted your bookmarks?

    "safari>reset safari" would delete bookmarks too?

    when was this changed? i can't even believe it did that, the idea is so ridiculous.

    What version of Safari are you using?

    I don't have this problem with 2.04.

    i'm using the latest.

    i was just reading posts a year old of people saying that resetting safari reset the bookmarks, which astonished me. i wasn't referring to what i'm using right now.

    I honestly don't remember, but I found this page on the Apple site for 1.2 and it doesn't mention losing bookmarks. If resets did lose bookmarks at some stage then it was pre-1.2.

    Not that I recall - certainly not since 10.3.2 at the latest.

    I'd doubt it though unless it was a very early bug in the first version but I'd have guessed any developer would have noticed it in beta.

    I'm using 2.0.4 and I have just 'Reset'.

    All my bookmarks are still intact.

    If your worried clear your Cache, remove cookies, and clear history manually.

    The original poster asks about old versions of Safari, and several people respond with reports of the latest version.
