    I tried to apply your advise:
    force quit Safari (double click the Home Button and swipe upwards in the Safari thumbnail).

    The Safari button starts to shake but can not be swiped uowards from the screen.
    Thereafter nothing chnged as far as removing history is concerten..

    The Safari icon is not supposed to start wiggling when you perform that procedure correctly.

    Make sure you don’t hold the Home button too long, just double tap it quickly. You will see the App Switcher, with the thumbnails of the apps you’ve used (a kind of “screenshot”) and the app icon at the top of it. Tap the thumbnail and slide it to the top of the screen. Somehow like this:

    My iPad is up to date with iPadOS 13.3, so it will look different on your device (bigger thumbnails, just one row), but in general, it works the same.
