    Also $ TMPDIR / .. / T
    and $ TMPDIR / .. / C

    Use "set" in Terminal to find out where TMPDIR is.

    Is not there a way to have the full list? It seems everyone will continue to add without be sure if there are or not others.
    (latest Yosemite and Safari versions)

    Don't answer if you are not sure at 100%

    I would like to restore Safari to the beginning when opened it for the first time.

    Look for Safari in /YourHardDrive/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/ and move it out of the folder. Relaunch Safari.

    you might want to remove ONLY the SAFARI plists from that folder, not the whole preferences folder.

    EDIT: i don't think any of what i posted here will do it (i tried it in a 'test' account). i'd ask apple directly, or google the issue further...

    Yes but now with settings in iCloud things could change quickly.

    call apple? go to an apple store?? there's gotta be a way to do it, less convoluted than hunting for files all over your user library (and perhaps elsewhere as well).
