    I've chosen to limit Safari history to one day in Safari > Preferences. Yet it still shows five days of history in the History menu. This really slows things down, and I can't figure out why it's not adjusting based on the Preferences setting. Any ideas?

    I do use Cocktail, but I also have it set to 1 day and 50 items.

    If you have 5 days worth of history and you change the setting to 1 day, it doesn't automatically delete the existing history. You have to do that manually, or restart Safari to do it. From then on, it will only keep up to 1 day.
