In Safari Preferences, Remove All Website Data - doesn't.


At least not the first time.


I have to go into Details and Remove All a couple of times for it to to clear.


And it often lists websites that I haven't been to before or ones that I seen in a while and that I have already cleared.


Is this happening to anybody else?

    Yes I have seen such behavior.  This also happens when you search and destroy selected items.  It finds the items, and you destroy them. You search again and it finds some items it missed the first time, or something.

    I can't answer wtih certainty. But, it seems like it is a Safari issue that is pretty new, maybe new to Mountain Lion.

    I've seen the problem since I went from Tiger to Mountain Lion in November.  If I click the Remove All Website Data button and wait a moment, it will say there's more.  A second click usually gets the rest.


    One of the cookies that persist after the first click is from Apple.  I don't know why it takes more than one click, but I prefer this to the old system because it also deletes Flash cookies.
