    Safari isn't keeping a record of my history after each session and all of my previous history is gone . I can no longer see website suggestions when I enter the first few letters of a website. This all started about a week ago but before that it was fine . Is there something changed in the settings ?

    Go to Safari > Preferences > General and see what is selected for "Remove history items:"

    Are you sure you're not in Private Browsing mode? No history is stored while you're in this mode (address bar has a dark background). File | Close Window gets rid of the current private window if that's the case.

    For general > preferences .. I selected "remove history items manually" . Is that right ?

    I am not in private browsing mode , whenever I quit out of safari and open it back up , I lose all my history from my previous session .

    I used to have 1+ years worth of history in safari and up until last week , it's no longer showing up in safari . BUT when I go to

    /library/safari/history.plist , I can clearly see history.plist ( about 20 mb)

    I had the same problem for the last 7 days
    and didn´t know where it came from.

    The solution was to delete all history and data
    via the last option in the history field.

    Maybe this will help one another.
