browser history cannot be cleared

2011-06-12, 6:59 AM

hello All,

on my Flipout I cannot seem to be able to clear the browser history, i.e.:

1. I browse to a blog page.

2. select Google from bookmarks.

3. clear history from browser while on the Google page pressing the upper right corner icon.

4. open browser settings, clear history and cache.

5. press the back key and I'm back to the blog page.

If I reboot the phone, the history is effectively cleared.

Is this behavior a bug or a feature?

ciao,

-Gian

It may require closing the browser to effectively clear the cache. Have you tried exiting to the home screen or killing the browser to see if that has the same effect?

Alpha,

thanks for your kind reply.

Exiting to the home screen doesn't work.

I do not know how to kill the browser... I guess that will work as rebooting does.

How do you do that?

Do you confirm the same behavior on your Flipout?

ciao,

-Gian

You may be able to go into "menu" + "Settings" + "applications", find the "Browser" there and press "Clear data" and "Clear cache" buttons there.
