    Just upgraded to 1.1.2. Now Safari history won't clear. I've tried the clear history button in Bookmarks and after closing and reopening, the history entries have returned. Also, I used to be able to use the "new blank page" trick to delete a page and leave a blank page in Safari. That doesn't work anymore. This has only been happening since the upgrade. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Have you tried to clear the history from the Settings?

    Otherwise, maybe you could check the permissions on /private/var/root/Library/Safari/History.plist, but it's a long shot. Either the settings have been corrupted somehow, or the application has. Have you noticed other applications behaving strangely since the upgrade?

    I did try to the clear history from settings and that seems to work. Odd that it doesn't work from within Safari. It's also odd that when the program closes with a blank page, it still reverts to the last open page when the Safari is opened again.

    My Touch isn't jailbreaked/broke/broken, so I assume I can't check the permissions. I haven't noticed any other programs acting strangely.

    Ummm... hate to show my ignorance but what does "joor prons" mean? And why would that be a good thing?

    thanks.

    I believe joor prons means your porn. Just a guess.

    But anyways, it all else fails, restore the ipod. I just had to restore mine due to the keyboard file being corrupted.

    Ah. Thanks. Well, there is that. There was that whole convulted thread about iPod Touch porn (or pron), and I certainly don't want to get that started again. (where IS all the good Touch porn, anyway?)

    But more to the point, I don't necessarily want an old page to begin loading if I want to quickly jump to, say a Google search or something.

    Also, I haven't noticed this before, but now after I clear the history through settings, when I open Safari, my bookmarks automatically pop up. I don't remember this happening before--I thought just a blank page appeared.

    Just an annoyance.
