Good Morning,


I have a problem with Safari ( Safari 6.0.2 - Mac os 10.8.2), because it doesn't keep history when i close it.

I tried to reset safari, delete the preferences, but the problem remains.

The strange thing, is that there are saved 3 days of november (2012) in history,

and when i reset safari or delete the preferences these remain, but new sites are not saved.

I also have checked safari preference,

and in the history panel say : "delete hystory after one years".


Can someone help me ?


Sorry for my english.


Thanks very much.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Safari 6.0.2

    Triple-click the line below to select it:


    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
    Services Show Info
    from the contextual menu. An Info dialog should open.
    Does the dialog show "You can read and write" in the Sharing & Permissions section?
    In the General section, is the box labeled Locked checked?
    What is the Modified date?

    HI, Linc Davis

    I have a question,


    i followed your instruction, and the dialog box that appeared showed "the coperation can't be completed because the item can't be found."


    and i also tried to find the history.plist in library, but i couldn;t found it as well.


    what i found in the ~library/safari folder just the a folder named "extension"


    the other problem I have is my bookmarks also keep dissappearing.



    1. I used the latest OS X 10.9 Mavericks, (just updated couple days ago)

    2. and my problem exist since the first time I used this Mac, (bought it this february in authorized Apple Store)


    Thank you
