Default Clearing browser history

Please Login to Remove!

How do you clear the browser history?

In the browser Options, at the bottom I ticked files, cookies and cache and Clear Now. The History then showed Empty. I then closed the browser and reopened.

However if I type in on the main window parts of the pages I've visited it immediately shows the browser with the number of pages with the search term.

So how do I really clear it all out?

Thanks

At first, I tried the way you mentioned via Options within the browser. Then I tried to do a memory clean followed by running desktop manager to see if I could 'Delete Selected Data' off of the device but couldn't find any history. I did a battery pull too. The browser history was cleared in the browser but not the main search from the home screen. Finally I tried an ALT-SHIFT-DEL and once it rebooted, the history was gone. So I'm guessing the history was actually cleared but the main search holds a separate cache until restarted? I'm not sure but it's a bit strange how that is holding on until that occurs. Didn't work with the battery pull but it did when I did the ALT-SHIFT-DEL? Very strange!

Correction. It does work on a battery pull too. For some reason it didn't the first time around but I've been checking each day since and the history gets wiped out on a reboot (either by a battery pull or the ALT-SHIFT-DEL way).
