    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.

    Hello, was there ever a fix found on this problem with safari all of a sudden not saving browsing history. My history is cleared every day even when the window stays open. I'm on remove history manually, I don't see any extensions or plugins... Any suggestions?
