    When you type in the Safari addressbar, it'll provide suggestions based on what you type.

    However my Safari retains some of these even after I clear history/empty cache/delete cookies.

    For example, if I type "F,"

    I get this:

    ... even after doing all of the above and doing everything I can to try to get rid of it.

    It's completely random. It doesn't do it with all sites, just a few. It's endlessly annoying for me because I'm a bit OCD and I like to have a clean slate on Safari once in a while, but nothing seems to be working. How do I get rid of that mumbo jumbo? :mad:

    But I don't want to reset Safari, because I don't like removing passwords, etc.

    Thanks!

    Do have that forum bookmarked? That should be the only place it can pull auto-complete suggestions from for the address bar if you've freshly deleted your history.

    Hmm, nope. I have MacRumors.com bookmarked through. I have nothing from the forums bookmarked, but a lot of the forums links still come up...

    You could try the Safari -> Reset Safari menu choice if you're really serious about getting a fresh start. Read the caution message it displays to make sure that's what you want.
