    We had a simulair problem after syncing with the cloud. I was using 2 devices with one itunes account. That made a big mess.

    I'm using 2 devices with one Apple ID, without any mess. My bookmarks are syncing without problems.

    Reboot your iPad. Perhaps that will solve the problem.

    Could you post a screenshot? At the moment I don't know exactly what you meant.

    Where do you tap to see your bookmarks? If you tap the arrow, this appears:

    To view the bookmarks, you have to tap the open book, then this should appear:

    At the bottom of you r 2nd pic it has across the drop down, an open book, Little clock then what looks like a pair of glasses, if I click on the open book there I get just these sites...apple yahoo google Bing Ipad user guide
    If I click on the clock I get the history of where i have browsed, If i click on the pir of glasses I get reading list
    When I save a book mark it should show up under the open book but it vanishes

    Ok when I click on the arrow, it comes up the same as in your 1st screen shot, then i tap the open book, in the middle of the bottom row as per your 1st screenshot. what then opens for me is a drop down box asking me to add a bookmark, if I try to add a bookmark of the site I am on at the time when that opens it wont save them in the bookmark it saves them in history as history

    This way you only can save bookmarks.
    Look at my second picture. There you have to tap the open book.
