    HI,

    From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...

    From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.

    Relaunch Safari. Check your history settings in Safari/Preferences - General. Make sure the pop up menu is set to your liking.

    If that doesn't help, go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop. Relaunch Safari. If it's a successful launch, then that .plist file needs to be moved to the Trash.

    It worked. I took my time to answer to give time to test out the history.


    No problem. Glad it worked out for you.

    failing that - I'd guess some script or plugin/addon is clearing it.

    This has been happening to me and I just realized that I recently installed Clean My Mac which has been deleting caches all on its own! Perhaps you've installed some utility recently that is throwing things away on your behalf...

    In your Home Directory delete (trash) ~/Library/Safari/History.plist
